Fern Street Circus is San Diego's original single-ring circus that features a combination of outstanding professional performers and entertainers in training. John Highkin, a circus impresario, educator, musician and arts leader with over 25 years of management experience, joined the Morning Extra on Friday along with a trapezist and hoola-hooping stud to show off some of the acts you'll see at one of its free performances in the city this month.
The circus is kicking off its neighborhood tour with a show at Pepper Park in National City on Saturday from noon to 2 p.m. It will continue its jaw-dropping, family-friendly shows with seven free performances this month.
