There is a delightful band of waterlogged vagabonds calling itself The Flotsam River Circus, . They have spent the summer floating down the Mighty Mississippi, mooring their rickety barge/stage at the river towns from Minneapolis-St. Paul on south, performing a wacky mix of music, comedy and acrobatics. Their last stop of the season is here this weekend. 

This late-summer night was perfect, even if the cobblestone levee was rough. We took granddaughter Ellie who declared it the best circus she had ever seen. For locals, it is repeated tonight and tomorrow at 6. Free, but donations are very appropriate. It's located on the river just north of Eads Bridge, with nearby parking in Laclede's Landing.
