King Bros. & Cristiani Combined Circus....What a winning combination with Floyd King routing the circus and The Cristiani Family provided an abundance of talent through out the performance. 1953 was the last year for this lucrative partnership grossing a million plus that year. May not sound high today but Adult tickets were around 75 cents and kid tickets around 35 cents to put it in perspective. As is often the case, the ugly head of jealously rose its ugly head, and the partnership dissolved after the 1953 Season. Wonder how many times all parties involved regretted that decision...killing the Golden Goose?
