Mini-circus offered big prizes !


It was billed as the Greatest Mini-Circus but it attracted a fair crowd to Phatboy Fireworks on Second Line.

The event was a send-off for the firework season said owner, Mark Varrin “it’s a mini-circus, you will everything that you would normally see at a real big circus but a smaller version of it”

That included an assortment of buskers, magicians, and dancers along with prizes to be won from various vendors taking part.  “In a big circus you get small prizes and at a mini-circus you get big prizes” Varrin laughed.  The grand prize being $500 worth of fireworks from his store.
