Circus Smirkus’ Clown Alley by Stuck in Vermont

Circus Smirkus’ 27th Annual Big Top Tour is underway as 30 troupers aged 10-18 travel across New England bringing the circus to towns big and small. 9 of those performers wear red noses and are particular favorites with the young crowds. Eva caught up with Clown Alley at the Champlain Valley Exposition in Essex Junction and got transformed into a clown for the day.

You can catch Circus Smirkus in mid-August when they return to Vermont for shows in Montpelier and Greensboro.
Music: Composed exclusively for Circus Smirkus by Tristan Moore
This episode of Stuck in Vermont was made possible by Hotel Vermont and Vermont Tourism.
