Circus Vargas closed out its nine-show stint in Newark Monday night.
Based in Southern California, the circus travels approximately 10-and-a-half months out of the year, with most stops in California, and a few in Las Vegas.
"We're really California's own circus," host Jon Weiss said. "We tour all around California and rarely leave the state."
The show, which features no animals, is about two hours long and is full of trapeze tricks, motorcyclists in a globe, aerial acts, bungees, balancing acts and more.
Before the show, Weiss and his wife Laura taught circus skills to the childen in the audience. Weiss began a similar pre-show program with Ringling Bros. Circus before coming to Circus Vargas and implementing the program.
While the circus has wrapped up its stop in Newark, it will stay in the Bay Area for several more weeks. Next up is Hayward's Southland Mall, then two locations in San Jose. For a full schedule of Circus Vargas shows, click here.
