This year's Carden International Circus features the dynamic Ringmaster, Brian LaPalme, navigating the thrills and chills, hilarity, and awe of the circus. Audiences will hold their collective breath as the Flying Cortes tumbles and spins through the air on the flying trapeze. Boys and girls of all ages will be mesmerized by the amazing Skywalker and Aerial Trio. The complexity of the contortionists and quick change will boggle the mind while the daring danger of the Wheel of Death, and the most-treacherous of propelling professions, The Human Cannonball, will make one question one’s own eyes!  

Trainer and presenter Catherine Carden leads the herd of Asian elephants as they adorn the circus floor demonstrating their enormous grace, intelligence, and strength. Massive Bengal tigers act like little kittens in the hands of Ryan Holder. Horses and camels dance in unison in the ring and energetic, prancing poodles jump and leap in a comedic, fast-paced performance.  

Doors open one hour before show time for the Preshow Festivities including performer meet-and-greets, learning circus skills, and animal rides! Show times: 5:00 PM & 7:30 PM, General Admission: $14 children 12 & under / $18 adults
