Music – Shake, Rattle & Toot!
Music is as vital to the circus as cotton candy or clowns; creating the perfect environment for a great circus day. We emphasize live band accompaniment for our circus performances, a working collection of 100 year old mechanical organs, and concerts on a bizarre group of novelty instruments that once enlivened side shows and street parades. Two times a day you can hear tuned sleigh bells, rub chimes, a Theremin, an air calliope, the Una-Fon and others in the music show at 9:45 am and 1:45 pm daily from May 19 – June 30th 2017 . From carousel rides, to wagon tours featuring band organ concerts, or in our new “Caught in the Act” exhibit, the spirited echoes of the circus will enchant and delight.
