The Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey 144th edition of the circus is at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena in Greenville Feb 3-7.
The circus will feature a legends theme which includes some mythical creatures you may have only seen in your imagination.
Clowns, acrobats, dancers and animals will perform for a crowd at “The Well.”
This is the last year you’ll be able to see the Asian elephants before they retire from the circus for good.
Also dog trainer Hans Close and his wife Mariya will have pigs performing with their canine crew.
You can meet him and other performers by coming to the show an hour early.
“It’s a way of life. I’m a second generation circus performer my parents were both in the circus before me. They trained dogs, and it’s a way of life. It’s not really work,” said Close
The circus will run Thursday through Sunday with shows starting tonight at 7:30 tonight and ending Sunday at 3 in the afternoon.
