Circus Smirkus performers showed off their stuff to a Montpelier crowd Sunday.

The parade was a preview for the International Youth Circus performances this week at Montpelier High School.

Parade-goers got to meet and greet with the cast and check out the circus activities,

The show includes aerials, acrobatics, wire-walking, juggling and of course, clowning.

“They’ll say to me, ‘Oh, that was so surprising, I didn’t expect it to be that good, you’re a genuine circus’, and I’m always like ‘Yes, we are’, so it’s a really professional grade circus,” Tour PR Intern Jane Medoro said.

All 30 of the performers are between 11 and 18 years old. Tickets for this week’s show are still on sale.
