Circus magic in the Quad Cities


Lights, color, emotion, fun, magic, laughs, bursts of laughter and much more, this is the circus, the most anticipated spectacle by adults and children, the only spectacle that never goes out of style.

This classic type of fun for the whole family will be in the Quad Cities, where we’ll be able to enjoy the great Kaaba Shrine Circus spectacle that will bring amazing and unforgettable characters to our community.

A caravan of more than 50 people are on their way to the Quad Cities amongst them jugglers, dancers, acrobats, contortionists, clowns, magicians and tamers together with trained animals and much more, to present one of the better circus spectacles in the country.


The 2009 US tour began in Indiana, and Davenport in the QC is the second city being visited by the circus.

During the visit to our community, HOLA AMÉRICA conversed with a likable character from this show, it’s about “Piolita” the clown preferred by adults and children alike.

Jorge Videla, known as “Piolita,” was born in Argentina and comes from a five generation family of clowns. “Everyone in my family has been a clown, my father, my uncles, my grandparents, my great-grandfathers, and even my great-great-grandfather, and now my two sons 7 and 4 years old are clowns ,” “Piolita” pride fully tells us.


I am a circus man, I was born in the circus, I married in the circus, my wife is an “aerial performer,” she does acrobatics, and as I’ve already said my two sons are clowns and they also participate in my presentations”, adds Piolita.

HOLA AMERICA, also conversed with Emiliano Fusco, whom with his twin brother Maximiliano are considered two of the best jugglers in Latin America and the US.


“My twin brother, my three sisters, my father participate in the circus now; my mother will join us in the next few days. We open up the show dancing tango and the gauchos’ traditional dances of Argentina”.  

“We are very excited as the day gets closer in which we’ll be in the Quad Cities, I’ve been to that area some time ago and I love the public, I believe that the people are very circusy, we felt how they enjoyed the show and that’s the most important for all artists, an enthusiastic public, attentive and one that enjoys the spectacle it’s the best motivation for us,” adds  Emiliano Fusco.


But the Kaaba Shrine Circus, not only has an extraordinary spectacle for the family. This circus show even has a social mission in favor of the community, because part of its tickets’ sale proceeds; serve to help those who most need it through the organization Shrine in all of the country.
