MIDWAY FLASH UPDATE! COLE 2016 SEASON CANCELLED! ... THE FAT LADY SINGS? ... MIDWAY FLASH! ... COLE CANCELS HAVELOCK SHOWS! ...COLE 2016 SEASON CANCELLED! ...

 UPDATE, 11:40 am PST:  Read Harry Kingston's comment below ...

News rushed my way from Barry Lipton ...

April 18-21 shows cancelled.

This from a report in the Havelock News:

A frustrated George Cook reported late Wednesday just before press time that the show was off.
“We got confirmation this morning that the circus is cancelling. They are having trouble getting migrant workers to help set it up,” Cook said. They needed 55,000 to get started and they didn’t have it so they just cancelled it for the year. It’s closed for now.”
The show has been off again, on again, this spring. The last word had been that the circus would come without animals, but now the whole show is kaput.
“It’s over. Done,” Cook said.
 Do I hear the fat lady singing?

More may follow.

David,
I just had a few emails from friends that they cancelled 2016 season.
I am hoping this is not the end of the Cole Bros Circus.
Several of us fans have shed a few tears and wish Johnny Pugh and Elvin Bale the best and time will tell what the future of Cole Bros will be.
If I win the lottery I would buy it.
