ALBION – Billy Martin’s Cole All-Star Circus returned to Albion this evening and its cast performed many daring feats inside the elementary school gym.

The Amazing Jonathan, “the champion of balance,” is standing on top of eight cylinders in one routine (in top photo).

The Electrifying Francy was featured in several routines, including this one with Hula hoops. She balanced 35 of them at once a little after this photo was taken. The Cole Circus is celebrating its 75th anniversary this year.

The Lovely Angela performs some aerial artistry. The circus will be in Medina on Friday with shows at 5 and 7:15 p.m. at Wise Middle School.
