On Monday, May 15 Cirque Mundial brought “The most spectacular little show in the universe” to Jackson County.

Five generations of family entertainment showed off their craft in the 4-H arena on the Jackson County Fair grounds to a packed house.

Enough people poured into the arena that it became standing, or sitting, room only as carpet was laid out for kids to sit on and get just a little bit closer to the action.

Martin Alvarez, the ring master for Cirque Mundial, said this is only the second year of traveling under the Mundial name.

Last year their tour focused on the east coast, so Alvarez said they were making an effort to hit the middle of the country more this year.
