IMPORTANT: Circus Dress up Day Announced for Oct. 30

For the first time in known history, we will have a COSTUME DAY on Friday, Oct. 30! Everyone is asked to dress as ANY CIRCUS CHARACTER! Circus characters do not include anything mean, scary or questionable (if you wonder, don't do it!)
We've had so many requests over the years so we are going to try this! Please stick with the theme. There will be some fun things that go along with it that day! Costume parades will be aired on Periscope!
Think acrobats, clowns (happy ones), tight rope walkers, motorcyclist, various animals.... No doubt, this will be the ‪#‎greatestshowonearth‬
