Inspiration Avenue Weekly Challenge
"Circus"

I really didn't know what I would do for this weeks challenge. Then I remembered when I was in elementary school, we got out of school just to GO TO THE CIRCUS!!!
The Shrine Circus came to Salida, Colorado 60 miles away from home. The parents would take carloads of students over on either Thurs. or Fri. to go to the circus AT NIGHT!!! I remember I was going to be a trapeze artist when I grew up. I would come home and my swing set would be all I needed to fulfill my dream of circus life.
When I found the picture online of the clowns, I actually remember seeing them do this particular act.
Thanks for bring these great Circus memories back with this weeks challenge.
