"Circus Circus" will spotlight "the greatest show on Earth" at the McCurdy Doll Museum, 246 N. 100 East, on Saturday, April 13, when Fred Roe entertains at a tea party at 1:30 p.m.
Roe will wear his famous clown suit and give his slide and sound show, telling the story of circuses from early Roman times to the present. A prize-winning artist who has made circus research a hobby for many years, Roe created the authentic reproductions of circus attractions on display in the museum. He built his model Ferris wheel in memory of his father who, as a boy in 1904, worked on the first Ferris wheel at the St. Louis World's Fair.A drawing for door prizes, popcorn and lemonade will follow the program. For required reservations, call the Provo museum at 377-9935 from noon to 6, daily through Saturday. Admission is $2.50 for adults, $1.25 for children under 12.
