I grew up going to the circus as a little kid living in Houston, Texas. We would attend the traveling iconic circus, Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey in the Astrodome. Always such a big deal!

It seems like the 146 years of herding animals around the world, making them do stunts for fans, rising costs, and the legal battle from animal rights groups became too much for the "Greatest Show on Earth."  That's not the end though.

This only opened the door for the Cirque Du Soleil events to entertain fans. This weekend you'll get the opportunity to witness something that I didn't even know existed, a water circus. Welcome, Cirque Italia to the Boise Towne Square Mall.

Whoa! This is "Aquatic Spectacular." Enjoy this custom designed water stage with over 35,000 gallons of water that artists from all over the world perform on. I'm just trying to figure out how this is gonna look in the parking lot at Boise Towne Square!
