Reason for parade cancellation, 1938
Reasons? H. A. Burkhart, an auditor with the Robbins Bros. Circus, and F. C. Kilgore,' local contracting contracting agent for the circus, said the parade plans were not abandoned until late morning, when delays in loading indicated that a parade would delay the afternoon performance. Mr. Kilgore said if the parade had been held, the matinee performance performance could not have been started before 3 p. m and added added the late start was brought on by unforeseen difficulties. But there wasn't any circus parade.
