Big top takes shape at airport

READ MORE: Big top takes shape at airport

Lions, tigers and ligers? That's right, folks. The circus is in town.

For more than 30 years the Cole Bros. Circus has been a part of the Azalea Festival. It is the oldest big top circus in America. Every year it gets bigger and better. This year there are more than 150 people and 40 animals involved in the production.

"It's very exciting," ringmaster Chris Connors said. "The second half of the show is very different. The whole show is different than it's been in a few years, so if you come to the circus and you go the elephants are on the show's over... No no no. Don't go far and don't go to your cars I say don't leave till you hear the bang of the cannon."

There are a lot of aspects about this show you can not see anywhere else. The first show was today, but the circus will be in town until Sunday.
