In an era spanning the early 20th century, through depression ridden times and a dust bowl, one form of revelry thrived – the circus. Traveling from coast to coast, rail cars packed with canvas, exotic animal menageries, strongmen, fat ladies, and roustabouts brought a much-needed relief to millions of Americans. The Park City Museum’s latest traveling exhibition, Step Right Up! Behind the Scenes of the Circus Big Top, 1890 – 1965, will open on April 6 and run through Aug 11. Visitors will get to explore another side of this thrilling spectacle and a history fraught with intrigue and majesty.
