    By their own circus train.

    It is always parked on the tracks along Roseville Road, along the boarder of McClellan Park by Orange Grove.

    I would so love to take a dear BFF from my childhood and two of her beautiful children to see the Greatest Show on Earth, please 🙂

    Good Luck, everyone!
