Flagpole Sitter!: The Daredevil Clown Who Tried to Put Long Beach in the Record Books

Don't Know Beach About History: Short Histories of Long Beach

In the summer of 1948, a tightrope-walking clown named Ozzie Osborne climbed up the center pole of the Sky Ride attraction at the Pike in Long Beach, California. Sitting 200 feet in the air, Ozzie faced all manner of danger—from night bats to severely swollen legs to a serious challenge from his archrival in San Francisco—as he attempted to break the recognized flagpole-sitting world record of 49 days. Join us as we tell Ozzie’s remarkable story of determination, bravery, and sitting on a flagpole for a really long time.
