Circus Chimera

Today is the last day of its present run, but the next time Circus Chimera is in town, borrow some kids and go.

It's a small Mexican circus troupe, apparently transplanted to Oklahoma if their big-rig registrations mean anything. Don't expect Cirque du Soleil (no high-art art directors) or Barnum and Bailey (no ethically troublesome large animals). The midway is just a gesture at the tradition. It's a great time anyway. My favorites were the mysterious miniature elephant and most amazing use of a leaf blower and a roll of toilet paper. The girls' were the Bending Ballerina and the acrobats. Oh, and the death-defying Titanic.
