May 28--Circus clown Ivan Vargas introduces the elephant, which will be part of the night's show. Vargas has been part of the circus for nine years and looks forward to continuing the profession that his parents were also once part of. Acrobats guided children across a tightrope during the circus pre-show. Children were encouraged to be part of varying circus acts during this 40 minute period. A circus dog jumped through a hoop over children as part of The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's pre-show on Tuesday. The circus continues at 7 p.m. tonight at the Corbin Arena.
