Gibtown, Florida

A community where carnival and circus performers (including some with unusual physical features i.e. "sideshow freaks") have been coming to winter and retire since the 1940's. Though most of the residents of the town of Gibsonton or "Gibtown," as locals call it, are not anatomically challenged, there are a large number of former carnival performers here, and it is also the headquarters of the International Independent Showman's Association.
