Circus Clown Catastrophe
featuring: the Tunnel of terror!
In the Fall of 1983, the Pinecone Circus came to town. The Flaming
Hoopsters was the big attraction that year and people came from
miles around to see the lion tamers perform their stunts. No one
expected the big top to burst into ﬂames. As the circus spectators ran
for the exits, the clowns tried their best to put out the ﬁre with their
pails of water leaving some clowns scarred forever. Some say they
still haunt the Pinecone Circus. Ages: Recommended for ages 10 and
older. FEE: $8/person, $1 off per canned food item (max $3 discount)
