When I was growing up, a traveling circus set up a tent at Jennings Park. At least that’s how I remember it. I’m sure there were clowns, but I can’t remember much beyond that. Perhaps I would have remembered the circus if I’d been to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus In the Loop rip . Seriously, click that link and a train will start making noise. Beware, and mute your computer if you must, but click because that site is just that much fun.
