Hey, there! I just wanted to mention that Netflix has a 2-part series called The Circus, produced for PBS, that is IMO really wonderful and full of history and footage about the creation, development, and history of the circus. It has really ramped up my excitement about the event, and given me a deeper perspective & appreciation for the Big Top...check it out!!🤡🤹‍♂️

I am glad you are doing your homework. I will have to check it out it sounds really interesting.

I hope our plans somewhat match up to history in how things could be done.

Regardless we have a lot of fun and a lot of boxes that will be ready for you.

Looking forward to a weekend with all of our circus goers.

My son-in-law told me about one (since and my daughter lived on the train and traveled with Ringling until they closed) but I didn't know about the 2nd (or the 1st - not sure which one I saw). Do you know when it will be on again?

I don't know when it will show again on PBS, but it is available now to view on Netflix, if you have access to that.

I looked and the one I saw was the Ringling Brothers Final Show. A different show. I found it on On Demand, but now I can't find the station anymore.

I'm so going to have to watch this! Thanks for the suggestion!
We listened to The Greatest Showman soundtrack on our drive over from Indy!
