I can only remember a few of

these clowns by name but more

of them by appearance

How about some help here

Chic Silber said...

Mike died quite young of ALS

& Janice went on to run the

education department at the

"Polk Pachy Park" until it

was sloughed by the heir

Sandy & Ron Severini

on the 2nd & 3rd steps

Mark Antony somewhat

centered in a dark hat

& jacket with his bell

around his neck

Antonio just left of

the rotten little punk

& Prince Paul Alpert

The big clown jester head

folded down into this cage

for train travel height

The Happiness Train had

2 central cars & a caboose

that were pulled in sets

of 2 by elephants

"Fortunate Kiddies" got

to ride the train in spec

Ushers in the buildings

did very well assigning

those fortunate kiddies

It might be Terry Parsons

seated under Mark's left

When I got to the park in June 1977, those cars were used for the daily circus parade held after the first show. Our operations team selected young guests to ride in the parad e and got to load and unload the little darlings.

Sure hope your team were tipped well

I recall that Buckles crew took care

of the power end of things
