It's official. The circus is in town, the big top is in place and the show is ready to begin.
Starting Friday, circus fans can watch performers under the big top, a theater-style tent that seats 1,500 people. The tent consists of 90,000 individually placed stakes and more than four miles of rope and cable weighing more than 17 tons, according to the Circus Vargas website.
This year's show includes aerialists, acrobats, jugglers and comedians in a show for the whole family. This human-only circus uses no animals in its production.
Movie fans might recognize Circus Vargas. The blue and gold big top was seen in the recent film "Water for Elephants."
The circus is on the vacant lot west of Hacienda Crossings on I-580 and Hacienda Drive and will be in town from Friday - July 18
