The public is invited to listen to Clara Belle the Calliope this afternoon in Plainfield, across the street from the Town Hall Theater. Clara Belle’s owner and Plainfield resident Thom Wolke invites children of all ages to come hear it played free at around 3pm. The circus music machine was built in 1926 and was the first Calliope for Ringling Brother’s Circus.
Viewers need to know that videos will be shot of the songs and will be put on sites like YouTube.
Please bring a blanket or chair to sit on.
