The Big Top is up.
As part of the annual N.C. Azalea Festival, the Cole Bros. Circus has come to town Thursday through Sunday on the grounds of the Wilmington International Airport.
Performances are set for 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. tonight and Friday. Saturday shows get underway at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday’s schedule is 1:30 and 4:30 p.m.
Clowns, acrobats and even a human cannonball are among the zany performers housed under the 1-acre big top.
Fans of tween star and Azalea Fest celebrity Callum Worthy take note–the Disney Channel actor will be guest ringmaster during the 4:30 p.m. performance Sunday.
Covering more than 1 acre of ground, the big top tent houses a variety of costumed characters, acrobats, clowns and exotic animals during a thrilling, entertaining and comedic two-hour performance for all ages.
Notable acts include a trio of talented elephants, fearless flyers, camels, clowns, motorcycle maniacs in the globe of death, clever canines, teeterboard acrobats, trapeze artists, aerial gymnasts, the world’s funniest horse, a white tiger act, a fast-paced dog act, a high wire troupe, and of course, The Human Cannonball.
