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 9:30 am and 1:30pm daily until August 28 2016. 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.
