Sarasota in Sarasota County, Florida — The American South (South Atlantic)
Charles and Mathias Coronas
Circus Ring of Fame
Legendary highwire walkers who escaped war-ravaged Czechoslovakia during World War II and became some of the most innovative, daring and influential performers of the post-World War II period. Known for their imaginative, original routines they frequently employed somersaults, leaps over others and unicycle, bicycle and motorcycle traverses of the wire - features not always included by tightwire performers of their day. Their spirit is perpetuated by Charles’ sons, Serge and George, who have successfully launched their own circus and thrill shows.
Erected 2013 by Darlene Ava Williams, Serge and Sergie Coronas and the Circus Ring of Fame Foundation, Inc.
