The 2011 Circus Smirkus season officially began today. The Troupers arrived at the Smirkus Headquarters at 3 o’clock this afternoon, and the atmosphere is buzzing. Old friends have reacquainted and new Troupers have joined the Smirkus family. Tomorrow the Troupers will begin their training for the 2011 Big Top Tour. This group is certainly a vibrant bunch and they will be on an adventure they will not soon forget!
