Circus Vargas cancels Thursday show due to windstorm

from: Pasadena Star News

Posted: 12/01/2011

ARCADIA - Circus Vargas is canceling their traveling show tonight at Santa Anita Park in Arcadia and will resume Friday to ensure public safety in the wake of a severe wind storm that damaged its big top tent and their living quarters. Minor damage was sustained to the big top and the midway, the marquee was blown over and a few personal trailers where our crew and their families live was also damaged, according to a spokeswoman.
The crew is working to repair the damage. It will also rearrange the usual layout of trailers and big rigs to surround the big top to block it from the expected return of high gusts this evening. The blue and gold tent itself is made to withstand winds up to 100mph, the spokeswoman said.
