    Will there be event T-shirts available? I will not be able to attend, but as a past Circus member (1966-1970 ), I would be interested in purchasing one to show off to my “active adult” friends here in Florida.

      Hi Mel,

      We do have a special Alumni Gamma Phi Circus t-shirt design, as well as Parent (I sent my child to college and they ran away with the circus), and Future Gamma Phi (for toddlers and youth). These designs sell at the show, but I will add them to the Circus store on our website. You can order online there and shirts will be shipped directly to you to impress your friends! 🙂
