TRAPEZE STAR TO APPEAR AT SHOWFOLKS OPEN HOUSE SATURDAY

In keeping with local circus heritage, the Showfolks of Sarasota is celebrating World Circus Day, Saturday, April 18, 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM, with an open house free of charge to everyone. Highlighting the event will be the appearance of circus personality, Miguel Vazquez from 11:30-12:30, for photo and autograph opportunities. Miguel will be in Sarasota for the World Premiere of the documentary on his career as trapeze artist, “The Last Great Circus Flyer”, from noted Producer-Director Philip Weyland, debuting at the Regal Cinema Friday and Saturday as part of the Sarasota Film Festival.

Vazquez made circus chronicles by becoming the first flyer to complete the impossible quadruple somersault from the trapeze bar to his catcher, a feat he accomplished 85% of his attempts, 2987 times.

He was enshrined on St. Armands Ring of Fame earlier this year.

The Showfolks of Sarasota Club is a haven of history with hundreds of photographs of circus greats on display. Members will be on hand to personally conduct tours of the facility, which is not regularly open to the public. Complimentary hot dogs, chips, salads and beverages will be served to all. Bring your

cameras. Showfolks is located at 5204 N. Lockwood Ridge Road.
