BRIDGEWATER, NJ - The Big Apple Circus trundled into the parking lot at TD Bank Ballpark this week and is unloading dozens of trucks and beginning to set up the Big Top, ticket office, support trailers and living accomodations in advance of its month-long run.

The Big Apple Circus has returned for the company’s 38th season with the New Jersey Premiere of The Grand Tour!

The Grand Tour transports audiences to the Roaring 1920s, the advent of the modern travel era, when the most adventuresome began touring the world in ships, planes, trains, and automobiles.
