The Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus has said goodbye to its audience after 146 years of live performances, from acrobatic shows to dazzling performances with wild animals.

The circus, whose motto was the ‘Greatest Show on Earth’, performed for the last time in New York City this week.

Kenneth Field, the executive manager of Feld Entertainment, who owns the circus, said that their hearts are shattered to see their audience attending their final show.
