How to use "Side show" in context?

The phrase, "side show," usually refers to a traveling exhibit or performance that is not included within the itinerary of a carnival, circus, or other entertainment show. A side show might be something as simple as a snake Handling act, or as complex as a circus performance supplemented by a traveling museum.

The popularity of side shows can be traced back to their origins as freak shows. Freak shows were exhibitions of people and animals that were considered to be out of the ordinary. As the public's interest in freak shows grew, so did the variety and complexity of side shows.
