A circus just isnt a circus without a giant tent. At least thats how Clifford Vargas felt when he began Circus Vargas in 1969. The show was meant to be a little of the old-school circus (tent) mixed with some modern flair (air conditioning). Unfortunately for easily spooked children and Stephen King readers, keeping with the classic big top atmosphere also meant there would be clowns in the show. But dont let the face paint fool you; these clowns arent terrifyingtheyre funny! And non-homicidal! Yuck it up with them between gasps of wonder and intrigue as the rest of the performers dazzle you with their amazing talents inside a brand-new, 17-ton tent.
