Sarasota in Sarasota County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
The Flying Palacios
Circus Ring Of Fame
For over 40 years they thrilled audiences with their sensational performances on the flying trapeze. Originating the act in Mexico in 1940, brothers Jose, Lalo and Raul and sister Irma burst on the American scene with Ringling Bros. in 1952. For three decades, they were acclaimed in the U.S., throughout Europe, in the Soviet Union and in South America. Joined in 1963 by brother, Roberto, and following a long run as stars of Circus Circus, they introduced their unique side-by-side double flying routine.
Erected by Ezra J. Regen and the Circus Ring of Fame Foundation.
