For the love and Passion of the Sideshow Culture with Female Driver Samantha Vee

For the love and Passion of the Sideshow Culture with Female Driver Samantha Vee

Many people have experienced the thrill of being at a sideshow, where they may have watched the drivers swerve violently and swing back and forth in circles. People often wonder what exactly goes on here and how they are able to experience such a unique event.

Sideshows are an American street performance and cultural tradition. These events take place in parking lots, streets, and city parks. Cars swerve back and forth, swinging side to side. It is characterized by the sound of tires screeching against concrete; the smell of burnt rubber. The performers get paid by spectators to share their unique talents on a street stage or inside a tent show in front of an audience.
