Notes

Summary:
Beginning in 1936, circus and carnival workers began to settle in Gibsonton, Florida during winter. Many retired in the quaint community near Tampa, and formed the International Independent Showmen's Association (IISA). 'Gibtown' has been a quiet refuge, offering the colorful community respite. Gibsonton unfairly became known as a community of "circus freaks." In fact, the workers and entertainers there are hard-working family-oriented people who happen to work in circuses and carnivals. The library has collaborated with the IISA in an effort to preserve Gibsonton's history through a digital photograph collection and a series of oral history interviews with clowns, entertainers, animal trainers, and circus musicians.
