Return of Sideshow!

Post by Gadget » Thu Feb 25, 2016 9:41 pm

Killbuck is taking the year off, but Sideshow camp is carrying on.
We are going to merge forces with the 404 Village not found.

BEHOLD! SIDESHOW returns to the playa in 2016 with an assemblage of freaks, oddities, magicians extraordinaire, and a real-life strong woman, all in the greatest old time tradition of the Circus sideshow.

Explore our Odditorium of Playa Wonders, anyone is a musician on our world-famous Corndog Calliope, and prepare to be amazed, bemused, and not excused, from our Midnite Magic Shows (at 1PM and 11:PM).

And for a few lucky winners, a trip around BRC on your choice of the Train of Thought OR the Paper Playa Plane. You literally cannot lose!

Nevadascott, I'm so glad you're bringing the whacky circus to us this year and hope that Kilbuck has a great year off. It's a big, wide world out there. Maybe he'll travel to far away lands and meet foreign shirtcockers. Wishing you the best of luck. See you at the 'Show'.

Thanks for all the positives! We are working like crazy to make sure it is an equally great camp this year. Joining forces with 404 promises to make it even better. We are bringing in some new talent this year as well. A few more world class magicians, and a bit of a bigger frontage.

So, after much thought and a vote by camp members, Sideshow has decided to depart from the 404 Village a be a stand alone placed camp once again this year. We are hopeful to be in the 3:00 Plaza again, but wherever we are placed, we will be an excellent camp. Stop in and see us!

Same as last year... SIDESHOW: Carnival of Smoke and Mirrors 2016 is looking for drop-in performers!! Do you have a freaky talent, skill or characteristic? Do you lay on a bed of nails, perform magic, juggle, or swallow swords? PM me if interested.

Leonardo risked prosecution by the church for his secret anatomical studies. Late at night by candle light, he meticulously dissected corndogs to learn their secrets.

Da Vinci's first idea for a Cornbow was not very popular with the King's of his time, but proved a smashing hit with the Peasants...
