Run away to the Circus ...


Friday, May 25 

The Circus has arrived!

Jugglers, acrobats, clowns and aerialists: the sawdust arena awaits you! Enter the spotlight that is the Big Top DIXIE Circus. Dreams of the highwire, being shot out of a cannon, moments of clownish hilarity - enjoy the possibilities as we gather in anticipation of a weekend filled with stupendous extravaganza to delight and amaze. 

Join the roustabouts as they gather round sunset to discuss past and future moments of glory. Ahhh, the smell of the grease paint, the roar of the crowd!

Don't forget - we'll have the Cookshack set up where our Stage Manager/Regatta Registrar (Beth Tumlin) will be dishing out a Hearty Spaghetti Dinner for hungry travelers and local fleet members.
