The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will perform its final show on Sunday, May 21 and even if you're not under the tent, you'll still be able to watch.

That's because the show set to be performed at the Nassau County Coliseum in Uniondale, New York will be streamed live "in its entirety" on Facebook and Youtube. The stream is set to begin at 4 p.m. PT (7 p.m. EDT).

"Tune in and watch with the world as The Greatest Show on Earth takes its final bow!" the show wrote in its description.

It will be hosted by Kristen Michelle Wilson, ringmaster for Ringling Bros., according to a news release.

In January, the owners of Ringling Bros. announced that it would close the show after 146 years because of increasing costs and declining attendance, according to an Associated Press report.
