May 28-June 1: Circo Osorio at Sonoma County Fairgrounds

You’ve picked up the special coupons at area drugstores and taquerias, you’ve fielded phone calls from other parents and now it’s finally time for Circo Osorio! The big top goes up for just five short days, during which children of all ages can thrill to the wacky antics of Coconut the Clown, the daring maneuvers of tightrope walkers and trapeze artists, and the gravity-defying stunts performed by gymnasts and unicycling jugglers. Unrenewed immigration exemptions for temporary work visas are threatening smaller traveling circuses such as Circo Ososrio, a wing of the American Crown Circus, so the time is now to finally load up the kids and show them a disappearing vestige of pure entertainment. They’ll be talking about the amazing motorcycle “Globe of Death” for days after the fantastic tent show, which runs Thursday–Monday, May 28–June 1, at the Sonoma County Fairgrounds. 1350 Bennett Valley Road, Santa Rosa. 6pm and 8pm. $15 adults; kids under 12, free. 707.592.7812.Gabe Meline
