TYLER, Texas — The Carden International Circus is returning to The Oil Palace in Tyler for six performances at the end of Jan.

Thrills and excitement will fill three rings with acrobats, aerialists, animals, daredevils and clowns! All this and more comes to life bringing unforgettable memories to all. 

The Carden family is celebrating nearly 60 years of presenting the circus tradition to audiences across the U.S. This year's show features a new generation of circus performers from across the globe. 

"Our melting pot of talent will create life-long memories as children of all ages are guided through thrills, beauty, artistry, and daring feats of danger by Ringmaster “Lucky” Malatsi," the Carden International Circus said in a statement. "Families will hold their collective breath throughout an entire two-hour performance watching contortionists bend and twist in extreme ways, acrobats tumble and spin through the air with the greatest of ease, become mesmerized by the allure of the aerial artistry high above, and witness heart-stopping risks and tricks as daredevils defy the laws of physics."

The Carden's herd of Asian Elephants will lead the charge as they adorn the rings demonstrating their enormous grace, intelligence and strength guided by multi-generational elephant trainer and presenter, Joey Frisco. Horses and camels will dance in unison and dogs will leap through the air as if they have wings. Audiences will also enjoy the “dancing bears” and other surprises throughout the spectacle.
