Big-top things are happening underneath Circus Vargas' tent set up at the Ventura County Fairgrounds.

Trapeze artists are soaring around in the air doing tricks most of us can't even do on the ground. A guy named Matti with a big red nose, even though he doesn't have the sniffles, is clowning around. Motorcyclists are flipping out doing stunts in a metal cage, and a big-shot "human rocket" is flying out of a cannon.

The circus' latest production also has a "Broadway" touch, with ringmaster Kevin Venardos and his troupe dazzling with dance and music. Arrive 30 minutes early for a preshow where kids can enter the ring and learn a few circus skills.

Performances continue through Monday at the Ventura County Fairgrounds, 10 W. Harbor Blvd., Ventura. Showtimes are 7:30 Friday; 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; 12:30, 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Sunday; and 6:30 p.m. Monday. For tickets, $20-$65, with $5 discounts for seniors and military, call 877-468-3861 or visit circusvargas.com. Kids younger than 2 get in free.
