The circus will be in Cochrane today, when The Great Benjamin Circus rolls into town.

Show manager Tomi Liebel says that spectators can expect "A good time, big crowd, lots of laughs, and that we do have a lot of extraordinary things that are going to impress a lot of people".

Liebel also said that his favourite part of the show is the motorcycles in a cage, and that they will be a big part of the show.

Show times are scheduled for 4:30 this afternoon, and 7 p.m. tonight, down at the Spray Lakes Sawmills Family Sports Centre.
