Not to sound negative, but if there's animals involved with this circus, let's hope that there's some kind of regulatory oversight or inspection to safeguard the animals' well-being. I've witnessed other traveling Mexican circuses--I believe they operated under the same name--that were pretty sad in this regard (the one that I saw in Reno comes to mind). There would appear to be different standards or sentiments towards these animals in these countries. For example, the practice of horse or cow tripping in the Mexican rodeos, where the Vaqueros yank the animals down to the ground by their tails. This often results in injury to the animals.

Kids riding around on motorcycles in a "Globe of Death?" Man, this sounds like letting kids play with matches. Isn't this a labor law issue? Whose bright idea was it to let this event come to town?$35 for a Mexican Circus when a 6 Flags adult ticket is $29.99?

Some of you posters need to step away from the keyboard and get a more positive outlook on life.

You complain about any and everything. The Vallejo waterfront is so underutilized and yet when they try to bring an activity 'the dark cloud' appears and the *itching and complaining starts.

I will bring my family to the circus and support the activities and will eat at the new restaurant, too. Hmm if no one does..pood..they go away!

We saw this "circus" if you can call it that in Napa and not to sound too negative, but the point is, it was Awful, absolutely terrible. The animals were abviously mistreated, many looked starved and just scared to death with all the lights and loud noises. The acts were so dated, the music, loud and not geared towards the American crowd at all.

Save your money and stay away, get a good DVD instead..

Vallejo is a ringmaster, but plenty of clowns.

Being informed is not being negative except to those who are uneasy with the situation. Fact is, county health has numerous complaints on the food. Don't know much about those poor animals though.
