In the spring of 1864, hoping to ride on the coattails of other larger circus’ Henry Slaymaker & William Nichols launched the Slaymaker & Nichols Olympic Circus. This circus rolled into Charlottetown In August 1864 and created quite the buzz throughout the city. The ironic part about this date is that the Fathers of Confederation were also in town with a great meeting that later became the formation of Canada. There was so much buzz around the circus that their arrival in the Charlottetown Harbour went unnoticed. To read more about the story, click on the link below.
