The Great Fussner

Posted By on March 13, 2013

Great_Fussner_1938This was a very unique rolling globe act using a 30 foot spy-roll tower.  Fussner would walk the globe downwards and of course, with a few exciting moments thrown in for the audience. Fussner was strictly an outdoor act because of his equipment. He did present his act on the front of some circus midways, such as Henry Bros Circus in the early 1930’s….but mainly fairs and other types of outdoor events.

    Mr. Don Fussner:

    I believe your father performed with the Shrine Circus in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on August 18-20, 1955….Can you tell me whether his act included fireworks?

    Thank you…
