Cole Bros. Circus of the Stars comes to South Mississippi

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

By Meggan Gray – bio | email

BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - It's been America's circus since 1884. The Cole Brothers Circus of the Stars has two more shows in Biloxi Thursday at the Coast Coliseum before moving to Gautier next week.

Under the big top, you'll enter a magical world, surrounded by exotic animals, flying trapeze artists, and the terrifying "globe of death."  There's even a human canon.

Ringmaster Chris Collons said for the first time in six years, tigers have also returned to the ring. 

"You know, we are celebrating 126 years of America's oldest big top circus. And with tigers, the elephants, and the llamas, the camels and the zebras - that's like old school circus. That's tradition, and I think that's the most exciting thing."

Cole Brothers also has the only woman in the world, who can balance herself on one finger.  

Again, Thursday is the final day in Biloxi.  Then the big top moves to Gautier Monday, October 4, and Tuesday, October 5, outside Singing River Mall.  All show times are 4:30 p.m. 7:30 p.m.

You can buy tickets at the door or click here.
