HOLD YOUR HORSES…HERE COME THE ELEPHANTS!
Tuesday: 1-2 pm • April 23
“Throw your hat into the ring” and join us to hear some circus secrets that make our Suncoast unique. Over a century ago, John and Charles Ringling first visited Manatee County (Sarasota County didn’t exist yet!). They fell in love with our area, building homes, developing real estate and adding to our cultural landscape. Throughout our neighborhoods are dozens of locations with circus connections, reflecting circus lore and legend. Learn and discuss how the circus helped to transform our community into a vibrant arts center, a unique tourist destination, and a wonderful place to live.
Lectures sponsored by Westminster Point Pleasant are free and open to the public. Pre-registration is required for the general public. Seating is limited. To register, call 941-309-5111; or go online to
