Four shows scheduled Thursday, Friday
The world's oldest form of family entertainment returns to northwest Iowa.
Circus Pages, produced by Jorge Pages, draws from three generations of performing Pages to create a show designed for all ages. The circus will offer four opportunities to enjoy a wide variety of acts at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. both Thursday, May 1 and Friday, May 2 in the indoor arena at the Clay County Fairgrounds.
Pages will showcase its show-owned animals including elephants, rare white tigers, camels, acrobatic dogs, liberty ponies, horses and white lions as well as aerial acts, juggling and clowns. The show is scheduled to run approximately an hour-and-a-half.
During the intermission, elephant and pony rides will be offered, and Ringmaster James will be searching the crowd for enthusiastic volunteers to help with the performance.
Originating in Cuba in the 1960s, the world-renowned Pages has progressed from its initial talent on the flying trapeze to its current array of international animal trainers, daredevils, aerialists, acrobats and clowns.
