Face painters and balloon benders from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey were on hand to pump up the circus spirit while Ringling Bros. performers led audiences in interactive, fitness-oriented CircusFit performances throughout the day.

When kids and families weren’t hanging with the clowns, they also had an opportunity to play on the new circus playground, which had its unveiling during the Sports Festival.
