Muttville Circus visits Port Jefferson, NY

Gabriel with the Stars of the show!
Port Jefferson went to the dogs and we were there to witness it!  The Muttville Circus came to town for the entire community to enjoy!  And boy was the lawn packed!  It seems as though everyone from near and far came out to enjoy this show.

This is one of the many family-friendly events The Port Jefferson Parks and Recreation Department hosts for the community every Thursday night throughout the summer weeks.

Want to see what's left on the schedule?  Here's the calendar of eventsBoy do I love living in this town!

Check out more of my my amateur videos of the event on You Tube here, including the doggy high wire act! 

If you missed the performance, don't worry! Johnny Peers' Muttville Comix is on Long Island through September 6, 2010 at The Long Island Game Farm in Mannorville, NY.

Johnny Peers Muttville Comix has been around since 1980.  Formerly a clown with Ringling Bros. and the Barnum & Bailey Circus, Peers and his 15 dogs perform a variety of tricks, such as jumping rope, ladder climbing, tightrope walking and skateboarding.  Muttville Comix was the winner of Animal Planet’s Pet Star Television Show in 2003.

Julia Williams of Responsible Pet Ownership interviewed Johnny Peers back in March of this year; you can read all about it here.

I bet it was a very cute show!

Also, your carpe diem ring is great! I'd love for you to post some of your items on my new site for vintage and handmade: - there are no listing fees or commissions on sales, so it keeps some pennies in your pocket!
