Default The Greatest Show on Earth is on the May 19 DCT

Today marks the 125th anniversary of the Ringling Brothers Circus, which premiered on May 19, 1884. There were seven Ringling Brothers, and five of them were involved in the running of the circus. Back in the 19th century, there was no television, no radio, no movies, and a good part of the population did not read well. Life was harder than today, people worked much longer hours; and a circus was one of the few forms of entertainment. There were many small circuses that toured the Midwest and the Northeast at that time, and the Ringling Brothers ran a very successful one.
In 1907, the Ringling Brothers bought the Barnum & Bailey Circus, and eventually merged the two into one giant act in 1919, billed the Greatest Show on Earth. Circuses moved from town to town in animal-drawn caravans. As the rail network grew, circuses started using the train to move their show and this allowed them to expand both to the eastern seaboard, and west of the Rockies.
There was no Discovery Channel in those days, and the circus was the only place where people might see elephants, tigers, monkeys and other exotic animals. Clowns were a popular part of the program, as were trained horses and trapeze acts. There were tight-rope walkers, jugglers, unicyclists, fire-breathers, and other stunt-oriented artists. The acts were done to music and introduced by the Ringmaster.

Today’s circuses, the Cirque Du Soleil for example, are very different from these ancient circuses.

Your Webkinz World account offers some fun ways to create Circuses, and to remember this ancient form of entertainment.

Have a great Thursday, the weekend will soon be here!
