It was "On with the show!" as the Piccadilly Circus kicked off in Morgantown on Wednesday.
Kids of all ages stopped by the circus tent outside the Mountaineer Mall.
The circus put on two separate two-hour shows. Before the shows even began, families got to enjoy activities outside the tent, including animal rides and a petting zoo.
"The kids have never been to the circus before. So we thought it might be a good time for them to come out. They wanted to ride the elephants, and we rode the elephants, we're going to ride the camels, and yeah they're looking forward to seeing what's inside,' said Karla Tucker of Harrison County.
The show features racing camels, the Romanian Olympic High Bar Team, and the self-proclaimed "World's Funniest Circus Clown."
