In 2011, James, Sr., announced his semi-retirement by handing over the keys to one of America's foremost circuses to his son, James M. Hamid, Jr., great-grandson of the legendary circus pioneer.
James M. Hamid Jr. James Hamid Jr Hamid Circus, Inc.'s Owner & Producer, James M. Hamid, Jr., still fondly recalls the time as a boy when his dad would take him to visit the family circus on tour. "The clowns used to put make-up on me and allow me to walk with them in the opening spec or wave to the crowd during Finale. I recognized then, as I do today, there is something special about bringing smiles to audience's faces." During his high school and early college years, James, Jr., worked in all phases of the family business from circus roustabout to production manager to executive, to becoming the youngest State Fair manager in the history of the United States at age 24. James, Jr., is acutely aware of all the minute details that go into production of the two-hour family-oriented spectacular. James, Jr., is a member of the following organizations

James M. Hamid Sr.
James M. Hamid, Sr., a third generation Circus Producer, began his career working summers carrying huge tin letters used to advertise the current attractions on the electrical billboards of the world famous Steel Pier in Atlantic City, NJ. After a stint in the U.S. Army and his graduation from La Salle University in Philadelphia, Hamid returned to the family amusement businesses, this time as Director of Public Relations and Advertising for the various Hamid holdings, including the Steel Pier, New Jersey State Fair and the Greensboro Agricultural Fair. When Hamid's grandfather, circus founder George A. Hamid, Sr., fell ill, James, Sr. was thrust into the role of Vice President and Production Manager of the big 3-ring extravaganza. Just like his father and grandfather, James, Sr. grew to love the circus. "The Circus has adapted over the years to take advantage of the latest technology in lighting and sound," says Hamid, "but the tried and true basics are still why people come to the show year after year. They want performing animals, clowns and spectacular aerial acts. The Circus is still bringing the same laughter, gasps and wonderment to the 21st Century as it did for the 19th and 20th Century patrons." Hamid also serves the industry in another capacity. As President of Circus Producers Association, he works with the other U.S. Producers in helping to insure that quality and honesty are integral ingredients to today's circus productions. The Association also plays a key role in mediating disputes within the industry and is instrumental in maintaining insurance coverage for all performers. James, Sr. is a member of Atlantic Lodge #221 F. & A.M., a member of Crescent and Murat Shrines, honorary member of Arab and Kalurah Shrines, a member of Circus Fans of America, the Circus Historical Society and the Outdoor Amusement Business Association. James lives in Galloway, NJ with his wife Lorraine. He has five children and seven grandchildren.
