Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus presents its Gold Unit “Zing Zang Zoom” shows at 2 and 6 today and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Civic Center arena. It’s a high-energy one-ring version of the famed “Greatest Show on Earth,” with performing elephants, thundering horses, dogs and cats, aerialists, gymnasts, Asian martial arts, magic and roaring motorcycles in the “Globe of Steel.” Tickets are $25, $35 and $10 for children at the Civic Center box office. Asheville’s own Runaway Circus and the Looses Cabooses play at 7 tonight and 2 p.m. Sunday at the Odyssey School, 90 Zillicoa St. The show features acrobats, jugglers, and trapeze artists and a live musical score. Admission is a $10 suggested donation, but no one is turned away for lack of money. At 12:30 p.m. Sunday, the circus will parade from Pritchard Park to Odyssey School. The Runaway Circus will return next weekend.
