After more than 40 years, the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey circus is due to shut down in May because of PETA complaints of treatment of animals, particularly elephants. But those of you who remember the drama and excitement the circus brought to our youths, it will still continue in a new technological form called “Out of this world”.

Riderwood residents whom the circus arrival brings back nostalgic memories, there still be some performances in the area before the shutdown this May. These are listed on a computer under Ringling Brothers.

A Riderwood bus scheduled to take 30 people from here to Royal Farms Arena in Baltimore on April 27th. The cost of transportation and tickets will be $53. Typical circus food will be available there. Forms for sign-ups, including times for departure and return will be made available soon to all residents.
