If you've been by Los Angeles State Historic Park in the past week, you've likely noticed a gigantic red-and-white-striped big top tent. Perhaps you wondered why a tent would be necessary in LA, the stationary circus town in which you live.

But this time, we implore you to take a closer look. The circus is in town this month and it's not your grandmother's circus. LA-based Cirque Berzerk is returning to the old "Not a Cornfield" state park for a 20-show run over two weeks starting June 18th. Get your tickets now for an unforgettable night of fire, aerobatics, burlesque, clowning, original music and dance under the bizarro big top.
