Here are a few photos of Europe largest show, the Circus Krone. I took them a few days ago in Munich, Germany on the Theresienwiese where the Oktober Fest takes also place.
The new productions in called "Evolution" and is 3:30 hours long! Many great animal acts and first class perfomers! This huge new tent has 4.500 seats and was made in Italy. A true Circus Giant!

This was another Hairspray, Pat goes to Spoto High School but this was at the Riverview Auditorium on a huge ratty looking stage with band upstage right, poor acoustics, couldn't understand a word and seats like concrete in which turned into one of my most miserable evenings in recent memory.
Good meal afterward at Applebees tho. me and Kay shared one of those big choclate slab-nasty sundaes.

This and the following images are frame enlargements from some Super8mm movie footage that I shot during the Blue Unit's unloading down in Old Town San Diego in July 1978. Buckles can undoubtedly give more information of what is being shown.

The cast on his arm came from a broken wrist the week before In Philadelphia when he slid off the back of an elephant while doing the ground sit-up.
He later admitted that he and Shane were bragging to each other doing the trick "no hands". Ted took it harder than I did, needless to say I received a few unkind words from Mrs. Woodcock.

Oddly enough, just a few days ago Shannon told me that one of his workmates at Bright House mentioned that he had attended a circus years before in Philly and recalled a kid falling off an elephant and he proudly replied, "That was Me!"

Our kids on the Blue Show in 1978 in our rather convoluted family.
Myself, Barbara and daughter in law Karen.
In front Shannon and Dalilah (both adopted) and Karen's son Shane.
The casual observer will note more plumes and sequins here than exhibited with RBBB the past decade.

After the act concluded, Dalilah would come come running back for a second bow, interrupted by "Charlie" who would return and escort her out.
Matter of fact she should be here shortly to take me away for a Blood Test this morning before going to her job, she's been with Verizon for close to 20 years now, I'll have to ask her.
