Dan Rice Days August 1-3, 2013 Girard, Erie County
The Circus is coming! Events begin Thursday evening with the opening ceremony and the ever popular Clown Contest. Friday arrives and the luring smells of kettle corn, funnel cake and hot sausage sandwiches fill the air. Booths filled with hand‑crafted treasures line the street, and the band can be heard playing in the park.
For more than 20 years the people of Girard, Pennsylvania have gathered annually to celebrate the life and times of famous circus man Dan Rice. Dan Rice was a charismatic and charming performer, a quick-witted comedian, and a gifted animal trainer, singer, dancer and speaker. He was an amazing showman and friend to the community.
The 3 ½ day festival includes sports tournaments, an antique show, parade, Civil War re-enactment, a crafters area, live musical performances, a children's play area, and classic car show and more! Complete schedule can be found HERE.
