The Barnum Festival brought its fun and merriment to the residents at Northbridge Health Care Center, Bridgeport on Tuesday with a police escort, a parade of vintage convertibles holding the Ring Master and Royal Court and a tour bus.  The crew from the Barnum Festival have spent the last few weeks making visits to area hospitals and nursing homes, putting their show on the road!

Greeted by Ring Master, Paul Timpanelli, chief executive officer of the Bridgeport Regional Business Council, the show included clowns, the Barnum Festival Royal Family, singing, dancing, merrymaking and a huge elephant mascot.

Northbridge Health Care Center, located in the Greater Bridgeport area, offers a wide variety of services designed as a bridge to improved health and rehabilitation. Northbridge Health Care Center is managed by Athena Health Care Systems.
