Circus to circo

On a run for Spanish-language newspapers, it was learned that Circo Hermanos Vazquez is heading this way. It even has a corporate sponsor: Telefutura and all the Unvision radio stations, including La Ley. It will be here for five days only: July 14 through July 18, with two shows on weekdays and an additional matinee show on Saturday and Sunday (3:00, 6:00, and 8:30 pm). The place is back on the southside, at "Pleasant Valley Park," probably right where that water-treatment plant was secretly planned to be. We first saw this circus when it was truly under canvas; now, it seems to have acquired one of those Ringling plastic tents developed for the short-lived Kaleidoscape one-ring experiment. We ran across Circo Vazquez up north by the new Crockett Center the first time it toured with this new tent. With a coupon (on counters in tiendas around town), one child under the age of 8 will be admitted free when accompanied by an adult (bleacher seats only; not good on Saturday or Sunday).
