HINT: Today is May 1st, a very important date for many people. Historically, the first show of the circus and carnival season was on May 1st. The term “First of May” thus indicates a first year circus or carnival employee. The quote is about running away with the carnival, an activity that would have been done around this time of year.
Today also marks the one year anniversary of the opening of the Uranus Circus Sideshow Museum to the public. They’re right next door to Escape Uranus.Check them out on Facebook.
