Coleman Brothers Shows 2008

April 6, 2008

The annual appearance of this venerable carnival was accompanied as usual by cold and damp weather. But the season opening of The Coleman Brothers Shows here in Middletown is really a shakedown cruise and warm up for the long season ahead which takes the show on the road all over the Northeast. Next stop Willimantic. What is really remarkable about this show is how swiftly the tents are folded and the rides dis-assembled; the show open until 9 PM Saturday evening and the field nearly empty at 9 AM Sunday morn. I live nearby and did not hear their passing in the night. I made a video (6:06) which I invite you to watch; comments please.
