It helps that this year's Turner Circus is supposed to have a swampy feel -- with a Cajun theme of alligators escaping into New Orleans.

Some 175 local performers, aged 3 to 73, will take the stage dazzling the audience with trapeze, tightrope and juggling, among other feats.

"The show must go on," Cindy Law told us. "We got a lot more cleaning to do and a lot more work to do but the show must go on and we're going to get it done."

The Turner Circus runs on the weekends of March 16 and March 23. There are Friday, Saturday and Sunday shows, including evenings and matinees.
