Circus Smirkus wraps up 2011 tour


Greensboro, Vermont - August 21, 2011

You know summer is coming to a close when the circus ends its run in Vermont. Sunday was the final day for Circus Smirkus performers. The youngsters perform all over New England for seven weeks each summer. And as tradition goes, they completed their run in Greensboro, the home base of the circus.



This year's theme took on the lighter side of journalism. "It was front page follies so it was news, newspapers, radio and that kind of stuff -- also in the 20's so a lot girls, reporters, newscasters," said Circus Smirkus member Brita Larson. "It's been really good this year. We had a new troupe this year so we were unsure on how it would all go and we have actually been told by quite a few people this is the best show they have ever seen."


And the show did go on -- right in the middle of a hail storm. Folks inside the tent didn't seem to notice what was happening outside the big top.
