Catch Circo Hermanos Caballero at They Tour LA

Three generations of circus performers bring 65 years of talent from one family to Circus Hermanos Caballero! Clowns, aerial acrobats, contortionists, dancers, magicians and death-defying motorcycle riders bring the thrills to two locations-Thousand Oaks and Arcadia this month. The circus includes my favorite act — the Globe of the Death, also known as the Sphere of Fear, which will blow your mind as three brave motorcyclists travel at more than 70 miles per hour inside of a mesh globe.

The Guadalajara- based circus, which does not exploit any animals, is kind of a combination of Cirque du Soleil and the old Midwest circuses I have only seen in movies. There is free parking, fun snacks, and audience involvement.

There are two separate troupes, who do not put on the exact same show. These photos were taken last week by Mike Guerena in La Puente. I’m hoping that is the show that is coming to Thousand Oaks. There is definitely some overlap. Prices vary from $25 – $65. Ringside seats are highly recommended.
