It’s quite the sign of the times!
After being in business for 146 years the Ringling Bros Circus will put on its final show this May.
The reason for the closing is due to the pressure put on by animals rights groups but also because of an ever changing entertainment landscape.
Keep in mind, the Ringing Bros. have been in business before TV, radio and even the automobile!
Tons of celebrities are trilled at the news.
