(KJCE) It's curtains for the self-proclaimed "Greatest Show On Earth".

Sunday night marked the final performance for the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Organizers announced back in January that the circus would come to an end this year, following a steady decline in attendance - a trend that accelerated after the circus ended its use of live elephants in its performances last May.

Organizers live-streamed the final performance, which took place at Nassau Coliseum just outside New York City.
