We then remembered the circus was in town for the Easter weekend's fete.
Did you know there is an annual World Circus Day, this year 21st April and that there is a circus school in Chatellerault, that will explain all those clowns on a Saturday night ! (only joking) Apparently Antonio Franconi, the founder of the French circus, is credited by many to be a co-creator of the modern circus, along with Philip Astley.
Did you also know that there is a clown organization called 'Clowns without borders.' and that there is a 'Clownfest'...you do now!
