Circus in Vineland

This event will reprise legendary circus acts of the past along with the talents of newer circus artists. In Mexico's Angels in the Air performance, daring young men and women on the flying trapeze soar high above the hippodrome track. Circus daredevils cast caution aside in ThunderDrome with the zany Cole Bros. clown crew arriving in the nick of time to provide comic relief. Elephants and acrobats, tigers and teeterboard artists take their turns in the spotlight, and the human cannonball gets fired at every show.
