Clown hitches a ride

Clown hitches a ride

July 19, 1976: A clown — looking very much like a Keystone Cop — hitches a ride on a police motorcycle during the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus parade of animals.

The traditional circus parade route went from Aviation Boulevard to the Forum at 3900 W. Manchester Blvd. in Inglewood. Circus performances ran from July 20 through Aug. 4, 1976. This photo by former staff photographer Bill Varie was published on Page 3 of the July 20, 1976, edition of the Los Angeles Times.
