years ago all children were tought not to get around carnival people because they would take children,as i got older i was told they would steal dogs too. that is what i was told as a child. and then some folks are afraid of clowns and they just put it all in one bag,complaining they were afraid of carnies. today it is a very good money making scheme,do you see some of the RV’s they drive?
. including your kids.so old timers used fear to keep their kids away from the carnies. 1950 i used to help the carnies set up and tear down at street fairs and my mother would have a fit,she said they would steal me and eat me. well here is what i found out. the real carnies were gypsies and they would steal about anything that was not nailed downUncategorized
