Why book Sideshows

Ah, the sideshow. No, it's not a show on the side of a stage. Think Coney Island or other boardwalk entertainment. Sideshows definitely aren't ordinary and are sometimes referred to as a freak show because these people can do some crazy things. I think it's safe to say most of us aren't about to go walking on hot coals, swallowing swords, or performing contortionist moves, but we love to watch others do it! Want your guests to leave amazed, stunned, and not believing their eyes? Well book one of these sideshow acts and see for yourself!
