Circus Pages, and Earnhart’s Globe of Death motorcycle thrill show have been featured at the Clare County Fair for several years.
Free shows are sponsored each day of the annual County Fair by the Clare County Fair Board and feature a variety of circus acts including international animal trainers, daredevils, aerialists, acrobats and clowns and the Globe of Death performances.
Circus Pages have appear all over the United State and Canada and specialize in all the splendor and glamour of international circus stars. They feature the “best care” for their animals, which include elephants, rare white tigers and white lions, camels, acrobatic dogs, ponies and horses in the acts.
Produced by Joe Pages, three generations of the Pages family are involved in the show, which began in the 1960s with a flying trapeze act and have evolved into their current array of circus stars, exotic animals and heart pounding daredevil action.
Also featured during the special event is Earhart’s Glob of Death, a 25 minute motorcycle thrill show featuring several generations of the Earhart family.
