At Circus Gatti, exotic animals, hilarious showmen, and thrilling daredevils delight families in an outrageous three-ring spectacle. During the two-hour show, the elephants Tika and Patti stomp to Bollywood choreography, and the liberty ponies knock their synchronized hooves under the deft direction of Miss Genevieve, who conducts with a baton made of sugar cubes. The High Flying BMX Freeks soar through the air with nothing but their speedy bikes and bones made of helium, with MissBEEhaven delivering further aerial thrills while fluttering beside her hive in an atmospheric ballet. Billed as "The Furriest Funny Man," the hirsute Laughing Leo cracks even the stoniest frown with his clownish antics and Mr. Picard's Poodle Parfait delights with the intricate routines of the eponymous canines.
