WAUSAU (WAOW) -- A three ring circus wrapped up its final day in Wausau Sunday afternoon.
Children got the chance to ride camels and ponies as well as Cindy the elephant. Cindy is 46 years old and joined the circus after growing up in Asia.
Like a true performer, her trainers say she puts on a better show when she gets more attention.
"Believe it or not, they actually enjoy the larger crowds we have," said Billy Morris, the circus' elephant trainer. "They enjoy hearing the crowds. They're performers."
Organizers say more than 1,000 people attended the shows.
