Circus, Latin America style

A poster in a grocery store lead me to El Coloso de las Americas Circo Osorio’s final performance Monday. I wish I had spent the weekend with them.

Here are a few teasers…. Expect more here and a video on kansas.com within a few days.

Master of ceremonies Roberto Osorio waits backstage Monday, Sep. 14, for a clown act to end before announcing the motorcycle daredevil “Globe of Death” act during El Coloso de las Americas Circo Osorio’s final performance in Wichita.

Osorio is the third generation of circus performers with roots deep in Mexico. Currently based in Las Vegas, Nevada, the troop of fifteen performers are on the road from March through October. They arrived in Wichita from Ponca City, Oklahoma and head to Garden City and Dodge City afterwards.
