Highway run into the midnight sun
Wheels go round and round
You’re on my mind
Circus life under the big top world
We all need the clowns to make us laugh
The Ringling Brothers may have closed in 2007 after 146 years in business, but a three-ring circus started by the Vazquez family from Mexico is celebrating 50 years of making people smile.
According to Jose Alberto Vazquez, a fourth generation performer and the Ringmaster, their circus didn’t leave Mexico. Vazquez just brought the circus to the US.
The performance is comprised of dancing dogs, aerialists and acrobatics. Mexico has banned wild animals in circus, while most of the U.S. has yet to follow suit.
Circo Vazquez performs acrobatics and juggling with Latin flair.
Circo Vazquez performed for over two weeks at the Bronx Terminal Market. This is their last stop for the 10 month, 20+ city tour.
Circo Vazquez entertains people of all ages. The parking lot was packed and I had to move my truck from the street to make room for the onslaught of honking vehicles and uber drivers.
The entourage will be returning to their homebase in Donna, Texas for a much-deserved winter break.
