The Flea Circus. "The 1st flea circus was an 'Extraordinary Exhibition of the Industrious Fleas' at 187 Broadway, New York City, which opened January, 1835. Admission was 50 cent and performances were given from 11 A.M. to 3 P.M. . . . A cold spell forced the exhibit to close to enable the exhibitor 'to fill up the vacancies that grim death had made.' It was reopened January 20, 1835, for one week."
