Letter: Attend circus that is animal-free


To the editor of THE EAGLE:

In the wake of so many letters protesting the use of animals in circuses, I would like to point out that the renovated, nonprofit Great Barrington Fairgrounds is hosting the animal-free Circus Smirkus, Vermont’s award-winning international youth circus, today and Saturday. (See gbfg.org/category/events/).

No animals at all, other than the talented human performers. Hats off to the new owners for making the Fairgrounds once again a site of community pride and family fun on a grand scale.
