Sarasota, Florida, was the home of two of the five original Ringling Brothers. As such, it has a strong connection to the history of the circus. In 1985, the city decided to erect a circus ring of fame, modeled after the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Today it lives in St. Armand’s Circle, where passersby can see plaques for P.T. Barnum, the Ringling brothers, and countless acrobats, animal trainers, daredevils, tightrope walkers, trapeze artists, and more. The largest monument is of John Ringling himself.
