Sunday, September 12 at 2:00 — Trunkside Tales with Ted Lawrence, veteran Ringling Bros. Clown

West River Railroad Museum, Cemetery Hill Road, Newfane.

Ted Lawrence brings us a piece of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus where he was a clown working under the Big Top and living on the railroad. Ted sets up the steamer trunk he used while touring the U.S. in the 1980s, and as he puts on his clown makeup, he enchants his audience with true stories about living on the circus train and working with elephants, tigers, acrobats, and clowns from around the world.  You will witness his transformation from “Everyday Joe” into a genuine bigger-than-life Ringling Clown.    Ted Lawrence is a gifted storyteller and he will regale you with stories of the Circus.   There will be popcorn and activities for all ages.  Bring your own chairs or blanket for this outdoor program being held at the West River Railroad Museum.  Free Admission!   Questions?
