The Greatest Show on Earth is in Savannah this weekend, the closest the big top ever gets to Beaufort.

Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus will be in Savannah through Sunday with multiple shows. You can check out the Savannah Civic Center website for schedule details.

WSAV has a brief report on the circus being in town, which you can check out here.

And what would a circus be without some protesters? Did I just type that? Really!?

Yes a small group of  protesters are opposing the use of elephants in the circus. You can check out that story here and the video below.
