Cole Brothers Circus headed to Valdosta


Circus lovers are gearing up for some performances in Valdosta. The Cole Brothers Circus is headed there next week. 

This is video of a recent performance under the big top in Albany.  Much of the show features animals.  They have 12 tigers trained by a couple from Germany. 

This circus has been around for 127 years, and Cole Brothers officials say it offers excitement for people of all ages.

"These little kids they've never seen a person before and the look at all the animals and they're close up with the elephants and at the same time you can't get that close to elephant unless you go to circus or zoo," said Mario Vitali, the Cole Brothers marketing manager.

The grand finale is the human cannonball. They'll be at the Five Points Shopping Center in Valdosta October 18 and 19.
