The first thing people notice about Circus Vargas is its big-top tent. Hand-fashioned in Milan from 90,000 square feet of cerulean-blue fabric dotted with yellow stars, the canopy completed the illusion of an elegant lost era when used in the 2011 film Water for Elephants. The last thing people notice is the absence of animals. They're too busy gaping at a man balancing a 12-step ladder with his mouth.

Keeping its marvels strictly human, Circus Vargas builds on a 40-year history by blending classic feats of fearlessness with surprising new tricks. The show features magic tricks along with a skilled hand balancer, a speed juggler, and the wheel of destiny.

Newark's sixth annual SummerFest assembles the best pieces of previous seasons into a single incredible street festival. The prime attraction continues to be a full, two-day line-up of live musicians with craft brewers in surrounding stalls pouring their creations. The marketplace features more than a few brews, though. Artists and crafters peddle their wares, and local community service organizations put together exhibits where guests can learn about their missions. As always, auto enthusiasts can find a selection of classic cars on display, metallic muscle carefully restored and preserved. Kids, on the other hand, can find entertainment suiting their tastes in the KidZone play area, which features inflatable playsets.
