It’s that time of year again: Circus Vargas will soon be pitching its tent in Milpitas and bringing with it a cavalcade of performers of every kind from dancers and acrobats to magicians and musicians, and even a clown – or two.
Orchestrating it all will be singing ringmaster Kevin Venardos who, as Master of Ceremonies, will bring a touch of Broadway extravagance to the event which is designed appeal to adults and children.
The circus and its Big Top tent need a lot of room, so they will be setting up in a large open parking area near the .
The tent is also an attraction that will be hard to miss.
