Missed last week's daredevil stunt reavealing the newest member of next season's Circus Sarasota? The stunt, held in Five Points Park in Sarasota, involved the quick ascent up a 92ft sway pole that amazed the crowd, according to Jennifer Mitchell, marketing coordinator of Circus Sarasota. It featured none other than the engertic Bello Nock. Nock, an international clown superstar, has been called "America's Best Clown" by Time magazine.
Circus Sarasota members are very excited to have Bello be a part of their 2009 circus shows, which begin Jan. 30 and continues through Feb. 22 near Ed Smith Stadium at 1500 Stringfield Ave., Sarasota. You'll hear more about Bello through our coverage on the event next year.
