The circus returns this week to Kent's ShoWare Center. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents Fully Charged – Gold Edition, a high-speed connection to electrifying performers from around the world.

The circus is in town through Sunday. Kent is one stop in the circus' 40-city North American tour.

Children from Kent Youth and Family Services caught a preview of the circus Wednesday. They watched and joined circus performers, got up close to exotic animals, including the 10,000-pound Asian elephants.
