Circus operations and production manager Brett Van Fleet is no stranger to the circus lifestyle.
“People live on the circus,” he said. “It's a family tradition for many circus performers. Some of their parents and grandparents performed here. We’ve had people working for us for over 30 years. It’s a way of life.”
Van Fleet, a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, started working for the circus seven years ago.
