Elephants, high-flying motorcycle riders, and funny clowns are taking over the Yakima SunDome tonight.
It's all part of the "Circus Gatti," which is performing two shows today. We caught up with circus clown "Laughing Leo," who was getting ready for his performance.
"Circus Gatti" is a family-run three ring circus. Performers come from all over the world, and they're in Yakima to entertain you.
"There's incredible thrill acts and everything's real, if you want to see fake stuff, stay home and watch cartoons, but everything in our circus, our daredevilry, our comedy, our amazing animals, it's all real," says Laughing Leo."And we really enjoy our jobs too, we don't do this, the reason why we do this is because we really really love it," says Ringmaster Brandon Bolden.
The Circus Gatti is currently performing at the Sundome, the next show is at 7:30.
