Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages step right up to be visually shocked and blown away inside the traditional Big Top circus set up in Santa Anita Park. The Circus Vargas is back once again to amaze and delight families from all over the San Gabriel Valley with its aerialists, acrobats, and stereotypical American clowns to form an all around classic circus experience. If you are looking for an experience you will never forget, this nationally traveling circus is the group to see.
Backed with a whole new storyline filled with mystery and adventure, the Circus Vargas’ show titled “Arlequin,” follows the story of a boy that dreams of joining the circus. As he falls asleep he is soon whisked into the magical world of wonder that lies underneath the big blue and yellow tent. Joining him in his mystical dream are various performers from all around the world, all having unique skill sets to blow you away. From motorcyclists defying gravity in the “Globe of Death,” to an acrobat that doubles as a juggler, these are not your average circus performers. Boasting ten different acts, there is a little something for everybody old and young.
As the performance is in Arcadia, you are five minutes away from various restaurants throughout the city and even a full fledged Westfield Shopping Center! A plus is that it is only a ten minute drive from the Pasadena Area, so what better excuse do you need to go out and feel like a kid again! The show will be running at Santa Anita park until Monday June 8th, so buy your tickets now before its too late! For more information about the show feel free to explore their website here. There, a full program can be found as well as other locations the tour is stopping at around California!
