The Day That the Circus Left Town

I was pretty excited by the news at Amusing the Zillion that the Vidbel Circus, a one-ring family circus, was coming to Coney Island for the season, and was planning to go this weekend.  Checking for information, I found that their last show was on July 17th, and the word on  ATZ was that poor ticket sales caused their premature departure.  This just made the waning days of old-style seaside entertainment ever more melancholy.

Shit, I wanted to go there too and now I feel guilty I waited.
