Uncle Sam (Andy Swan)

Uncle SamIt all began when Andy's oldest brother, George, taught him how to juggle back in 1966. At first Andy would visit the circuses just to see the jugglers, but once he saw what else the circus had to offer he fell in love. After high school he went off to join the DeWayne Bros. Circus in Oregon. During his year with them he learned just about everything there was to learn about circus life.

Joining Freethought Day as Uncle Sam, Andy will delight children and adults with juggling, balloon animals, magic, and all kinds of good-natured fun. 

Uncle Sam will be available approximately from noon until 4 PM.
