Lancaster, CA: It’s the day before fair starts, we wake up early to set up the tent, the weather is pretty normal, it’s about 11 AM and the heat it’s just starting to build up, there’s no wind. When the tent was up & ready and it was time to steak it down to the ground – with no rush, because as I said before, there was zero wind – then all of the sudden this gust of wind blew so strong and so fast that picked up the whole 30×30 foot tent off the ground and then brought it down on top of our trailer. Circus Imagination had a moment of flying circus! Nobody got hurt, some poles got bent, some couplings needed a little bit of welding, but we got it all fixed in time for fair opening!

Mr. Banks: Just a moment, Mary Poppins. What is the meaning of this outrage?
Mary Poppins: I beg your pardon?
Mr. Banks: Will you be good enough to explain all this?
Mary Poppins: First of all, I would like to make one thing quite clear.
Mr. Banks: Yes?
Mary Poppins: I never explain anything.
