Decorated in joyous circus themes, Hugo’s Circus Drive-In opened on August 23, 1950 with Ann Blyth in “Red Canyon”. It continuously operated until the late-1970’s. After that it was an on and off operation until closing completely in the early-1980’s. It was rumored that a local concern was making arrangements to begin restoration work on this festive facility to prepare it for cinema use again. This never happened and it has been demolished.
For many decades Hugo was winter quarters for several circus units. Showmen’s Rest Cemetery reflects Hugo’s connection with exotic circus folk.
