The Circus Came To Town

"After a long period of constantly changing its spots to chase the competition, the Greatest Show on Earth has, these last couple of years, settled more easily into its own distinctive, time-honored skin," Chris Jones wrote for the Tribune this month.

"The enjoyable latest edition of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus - entitled Barnum's FUNundrum - takes its cue from the 200th anniversary of the birth of that great showman P.T. Barnum, and thus is a cheerfully - even defiantly - retro experience that re-centers this last of North America's great traveling circuses in the carnival tradition."

The circus was in Rosemont until the 14th, then played at the former Chicago Stadium through Sunday night. Here are some highlights.

1. The Train.


2. Elephant Walk.

3. The Opening.


4. The Tigers.


5. Superhero Clown Car.


6. Bike Sphere.


7. Tall Dancers.


8. Protest.
