Dining on the Ringling Brothers Pie Car – a Visual Feast

While we waited for the food to be prepared, we were able to visit with several members of the circus, including Andre McClain, America’s Favorite Cowboy and his fiance Danielle Diamboli, who is a dancer and a snake charmer originally from Brazil. They are pictured here with Maggie. We also met George Caceres of The Flying Caceres. He is a third generation performer and trapeze artist.
