LIVINGSTON, NJ – This year’s Livingston Memorial Day weekend came to a close with two showings of the Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars, which was chock full of clowns, dogs, ponies, elephants, acrobats, tight rope walkers, the Thunderdrome, The Human Cannonball, and so much more.

Guests came from other towns aside from Livingston to eat popcorn, cotton candy and take in the show.

Outside, attendees were welcomed by many clowns—some juggling, doing face painting, or just walking around greeting guests and posing for photos.

Next, guests entered the Big Top for the show. Ringmaster Chris Connors got the crowd excited and ran a fun and fluid show.

In the first act, Vicenta Pages, a second-generation tiger trainer had the white tigers rolling over,  jumping over one another and looking more like kittens than ferocious tigers.

Other acts included: Petya Milanova performing an aerial act, while attached to a wire by her hair, Lana and Company, a mother and son hand-balancing duo; the Fassio family; the Corps De Ballet, doing artistic aerial choreography; the Ponce Family on the flying trapeze; The Frisco Family and their dancing elephants; and Eric, Windy and Anthony, circus daredevils, riding motorcycles in the tiny, round ThunderDrome.

The Circus ended with Jose Bermudez and The World's Largest Cannon, which shot human cannonball Dale Thomsen, across the Big Top.

“My favorite part was the ThunderDrome,” said Dylan of West orange, as he left the circus.

His friend Daniel, 8, agreed that it was cool, but said he liked the human cannonball the best.
