You can see his progress on our Facebook page. Sideshow Trivia
Once upon a time, circuses and carnivals traveled with a remarkable troupe of performers who headlined the sideshows. Human oddities such as bearded ladies, pop-eyed men, and Siamese twins conjoined (pardon the pun) forces with working acts - fire eaters, sword swallowers and belly dancers - to entertain the curious with their strange talents and appearances. This year, the Creative Arts Center Dallas Costume Art Ball pays homage to the sideshow stars of yesteryear. It’s your chance to be the Fat Lady, the Strong Man, or the Frog Girl. Come in costume as your favorite sideshow performer. Come eat, drink, play games, and enjoy the music of the sideshow! Maybe you’ll be the winner of the costume competition! Let’s party ‘til the Fat Lady sings!
