    The traditional sideshow acts are back at Quassy Amusement Park this July 9-22 as the Ripley's Believe It or Not! Summer Sideshow is presented daily at the Middlebury, Conn. family funpark. The amazing Todd Robbins will head up the acts in this historic look back at the golden years of the sideshow.
