Down the Road Season 1, Episode 6 Nov 17, 2010 Paid

Emotions run high as the circus season winds down. Many members of the cast and crew won’t be going back to Big Apple next season — some are heading to Europe; others are still trying to figure out what’s next. Some of the younger performers who have grown up in the circus consider leaving circus life. The night before the final shows, the crew puts on a traditional spoof called “Midnight Clowns” for the performers. The laughter is infectious and the partings bittersweet. As the trailers pull out of the lot and the tent comes down for the last time, we join in the time-honored circus farewell: not “goodbye,” but “see you down the road.”
