LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The Venardos (veh- NARR-dos) Circus returns to Louisville for an extended stay.

WDRB's Keith Kaiser caught up with some of the performers at the circus Friday on the Big Four Lawn at Waterfront Park for a preview. 

The Venardos Circus, a unique Broadway-Style Circus performance, has been touring the U.S. since its debut at the L.A. County Fair in 2014.

The 10-day Louisville run in December is filled with mesmerizing entertainment.

Venardos Circus features its own custom-made big-top, a classic red-and-white striped tent, with an intimate feel and limited seating.

The circus performers also are the crew in this traveling tour, much like the original circus tradition.

There are no animals in Venardos Circus.

Parking is free with preshow entertainment beginning an hour before showtime.

Expect classic circus treats like fresh popcorn, cotton candy, house-made all-natural pink lemonade, nachos, hot dogs, packaged candy, and
