AN URBAN VOICES VAZQUEZ CIRCUS 2

For this week’s “Urban Voices” segment on “Americas Now,” we profile a family whose life is quite literally a three-ring circus. In fact, their entertainment ensemble is called The Vazquez Brothers Circus.

It was five decades ago in rural Mexico when the two Vazquez brothers broke into the business by starting a circus to entertain people and help take their minds off of their everyday problems. They have been performing under the big top for four generations and now stage productions in the United States as well.

Their circus is known for combining performances from gymnasts, jugglers, and trapeze artists with Latin flair.

“Americas Now” caught up with the Vazquez Brothers Circus when they were traveling through Washington D.C. area. Their show featured a performance using rescue dogs.
