Jackson. GA--The animal acts included white lions, tigers, camels, horses and elephants while the human performers took to the air for high-flying rope and ring demonstrations and trampoline acrobatics. Circus Pages also included motorcycle stunts performed inside the Globe of Death, an enclosed metal sphere in which riders zipped around seemingly barely missing one another and the unarmored female performer standing at the bottom.

Clowns kept the show going with antics involving audience members, and kids and adults alike also got to take in the full circus experience with peanuts, popcorn, cotton candy and various souvenirs.
