If you know about Sarasota, you know about our circus heritage.
Recently two events happened that highlight this heritage.
An Historical Marker was unveiled at the home of the Wallenda family. This plaque is on Arlington near the intersection with Orange. If you get the chance stop by and take a look.
The second event was the 23rd Annual Induction into the Circus Ring of Fame at St Armands Circle. This event was attended by several hundred folks and six new inductees were honored for their contributions to the legacy of the circus.
Sarasota has a unique connection to the circus and these events remind us of this.
