Albany- The Clyde Beatty Cole Brothers Circus is performing in Albany, and hundreds of South Georgians are getting ready for an exciting show.  The circus is in town, and I had a chance to run away with the circus and learn what it means to work under the big top.

First, I learned how to juggle with the clowns, and I even got a chance to meet Eli Pamoukov, who gets shot out of a canon ball each night, as the "Raven." 

And of course, I couldn't leave without learning a few tricks from ringmaster, Chris Conners, who has been performing in the circus for one year.  

Today, I learned being a circus performer is fun, but it's not easy, so I think I'll just stick to my day job.

 If you didn't get a chance to see Saturday's show, you can still catch a performance at 1:30 and 4:30 Sunday.
