In Pearland, TX on a cloudy day in the mid 70’s with a chance of thunderstorms, on an asphalt parking lot on North Main, across from the Wal-Mart Supercenter the Carson & Barnes Circus ends its 70th season beneath the bigtop. While four indoor dates in Tulsa, Little Rock, Wichita, and Mesquite loom in the coming weeks, the mudshow is going home.


Tomorrow the trucks will travel 350 miles back to Hugo, and the tent crew returns to Mexico. . 235 communities give or take. 500 performances. 15 thousand miles in eight months across nineteen states. On Monday night Geary and Barbara Byrd will kick off their shoes in the house that Kelly Miller built, Dun Rovin’.

At winterquarters, quietly, thoughts will turn to the next season.
