The Big Top

South Windsor, CT  2015

The entire circus performance was held within this big top tent, which comfortably seats about 700.  Each performance lasts about 2 hours, with a 10 minute intermission and there were two performances for each of the two days that Circus Smirkus was in South Windsor.  Within 20 minutes after the final performance, the troupers were all involved in taking down the bleachers, riggings, circus ring, tent, etc, and getting it all ready to be loaded onto trucks for their next destination.  This year's tour will take them to 15 cities in New England over a course of 7 weeks where they will perform 66 times.
