Direct your eyes to the center ring, where we celebrate our town’s world-famous circus heritage with high-flying styles with all the color, glitter and glamour of the Greatest Show on Earth! Special thanks to Erendira Wallenda and Pedro Reis of Circus Sarasota, which kicks off its season Feb. 12, and to PAL Sailor Circus, where our story was shot.
