Weird Florida: Day 9 Wrap-Up

Just when our bodies are aching, our patience is low and the weather is hot and steamy, we have our best day yet.  If you’ve never been to Sarasota’s Circus Museum on the Ringling Estate, I have to say GO!  It was AWESOME!! Its an interactive museum and houses the biggest littlest circus built by Howard Tibbals. This model is a replica of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus from 1919 – 1938 and is complete with moving figurines.  It’s 3800 square feet and it took Howard over 50 years to build.  So now that we were clearly on visual overload, we headed north to Tampa off I-75 to visit a place called Hong Kong Willie.  Every inch of this place has art, from the walls, the ceiling, in the garden and even by the road.  It is so weird looking it beckons you to take a closer look and when you do, you learn a valuable lesson… to appreciate everything around you.

Check out two videos from today below!  The first one is at the World's Biggest Littlest Circus


And this one is with Weird Florida friend Hong Kong Willie
