More than 150 performers will be at this year's Cole Brothers, "Circus of the Stars." But what won't be at the circus is any animals...That's because Apple Blossom Mall owner Simon Property Group banned wild animal events on all of it's properties.
"It's a minor change. We have always had animals in our circus, but we've had this long relationship with the Apple Blossom Festival and with the Apple Blossom Mall and it had nothing to do with either of them and we wanted to continue that relationship so here we are with a new show to thrill and amaze people. It's incredible," said Cole Brothers Circus Senior Marketing Director Chuck Werner.
Cole Brother's Circus representative says they're making up for it with other performances.
"There is a whole new city that comes here and entertains us. We have a big ballet with women in the air doing all kinds of acrobatic things and then this year we've imported a new acrobatic group from Romania. This is their first time in the United States," said Werner
The circus begins Friday May 4th from 4:30.
