Here are two nice, colorful photos taken at the Dance Circle over in Frontierland - judging from the crowds that are almost always in vintage images, this was a very popular attraction for many years. This fellow is wearing an eagle costume, and he has bells on his knees. You can practically hear the jingles!
Look at the impressive berm, effectively keeping the outside world from intruding. Such a simple idea, and yet a brilliant one. There's a little trail up the hill, presumably for gardeners or other maintenance crews. Notice the paper target affixed to hay bales - why in the world was that there?
Now another performer is in the Circle, albeit less eagle-y and jingly. Notice the herd of red-vested Campfire Girls. Don't mess with them! They know Judo, so they can break your arm, and then helpfully set it for you. Other late arrivals in the crowd have climbed up the embankment for a clearer view - I can't tell if the gentleman with the cap is holding a movie camera or not.
