- Sep 1, 2008The 2nd Annual Circus Show & Other Atrocities juxtaposes the dark,
painful lives of performing animals with the fun, amusing atmosphere

already shaping up to be extraordinary!

of Bizarro, who will be joined by comedian and MC, Keith Lowell
Jensen, singer Larisa Bryski, plus jugglers, belly dancers,

rides, as well as raffle prizes including original artwork and so much
more. With proceeds donated to animal protection groups.

Circus Train installation, on display in the gallery through October 11th.

The Circus Show is more than just a performance and art show as
participants take to the streets for the unofficial Midtown Freak
Parade and the event spills over to other venues throughout downtown
Sacramento who will also have circus-themed shows the same evening.
This year's Circus Show will easily top the Ringling Bros. circus,
which just happens to be in town the same weekend.
