ALPHARETTA, Ga. — Clowns, animals, aerialists and more -- that time of the year is here again. The circus has returned to Atlanta.
Atlanta is home to a trio of circuses during the month of February. The first one to pitch the big tent in town was the Big Apple Circus.
"We have dogs, we have ponies, we even have oxen," ringmaster John Kennedy Kane told Nelson's News on wsbtv.com. "We have horses, too. We have acts from all over the world."
It's been two years since the Big Apple Circus played to Atlanta crowds. This year, it's back with a new show in a new venue. The show Legendarium takes circus goers back in time and explores some of the history of the circus. Jugglers, acrobats and a pair of clowns are part of this affair.
