The setting, Gibsonton Florida, is a real town in Florida that is actually populated mainly by circus performers, originally in the circus off-season. This is partially due to its proximity to the Ringling Bros. Circus in Tampa and Sarasota, and also due to its liberal zoning laws which allowed the storage of such things as elephants or circus trailers on front lawns. See more
