Return of the Great Circus Parade

The clowns are coming back to downtown Milwaukee.

After a six-year hiatus, the Great Circus Parade is expected to return in July of 2009.

Steve Freese, the executive director of the Circus World Museum Foundation, tells the Journal Sentinel it will be one of the largest parades they've ever put on.
I hope they do the circus train, too. They used to load all the wagons onto flat cars (big event) and roll all the way up to the Fox Cities, then back down to Milwaukee. Big crowds gathering to watch it go by. You can not replace that kind of exposure, that kind of press, that kind of public relations.

If Circus World Museum is going to survive, I have to believe they need that, which means they need the parade. I hope it works out.

Oh, but don’t invite these guys:

The Sheboygan Police Department arrested a group of 8 people who were apparently going around town dressed as a rock group called “Insane Clown Posse”. They spray painted graffiti and then took pictures of their “work”.
Maybe not this guy, either:
