Marquette to host circus in May

MARQUETTE — The Carden International Circus has announced that its all-new Spectacular Extreme Circus, featuring acts of extreme talent and jaw-dropping performances, is coming to Lakeview Arena in Marquette on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11, for four performances.

The Spectacular Extreme Circus is led by the high-energy of Ringmaster “Lucky” Malatsi, who navigates the audience through BMX riders and moto riders’ wild jumps and stunts, the dangling intensity of a single trapeze, the roar and excitement inside the sphere of the Motorcycle Globe of Death and the focused concentration 30 feet in the air on a 1- inch-wide high-wire.

The Carden herd of Asian elephants, always a fan favorite, adorn the center ring demonstrating their enormous grace, intelligence and extreme strength.

For over 60 years, the Carden family has provided audience members a true three-ring circus. The Spectacular Extreme Circus overflows with talent from across the globe, including Africa, Mongolia, Brazil, Mexico, Russia, and of course, the U.S.

These acrobats, aerialists, dare-devils, clowns and more are real-life masters of gravity, purveyors of breathtaking feats, creators of belly-jiggling hijinks and maestros of airborne artistry.

Doors open one hour before show time for the Preshow Festivities including performer meet-and-greets, animal rides, interactive fun and more.

The Friday show starts at 6:30 p.m. while there are three shows Saturday, 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
