JACKSON — The 154th Jackson County Fair continues through Sunday in Jackson. Included in the many activities and shows, from the 4-H exhibits to bands performing — the Los Moralitos Circus is a must see, offering free shows all five days of the Jackson County fair.

The Los Moralitos Circus, created in 2016, is run by Jonathan Vazquez and his wife Haley.

Jonathan is a fourth generation circus performer, who has entertained audiences since he was just four years old. His twin daughters have also started performing, making them the fifth generation in the Vazquez family.

Jonathan’s long term goal is “becoming one of the greatest shows on earth, and bringing you a smile when you need it”.

The shows, each about 45 minutes long, showcase acrobats, aerialists, professional tumbling, unicycles and a funny clown. It includes five acts: The Globe of Death, a mesh globe made of steel that allows stunt riders to ride motorcycles inside. Riders can loop vertically and horizontally.

A crowd favorite and most popular stunt for the group is the high wire at 20 feet high. There is also the Wheel of Destiny, a large space-framed beam with hoop tracks at both ends sitting at 30 feet tall. Performers can run on either side of the hoops, and they also do tricks as

the whole rig rotates. Aerial Lyra is performed by 7-year-old Kaylin. Lastly, there is Chuy the clown.

Vazquez likes to get the children in the audience involved, and conducts a hula hoop contest during the show in which the kids have a chance to win a special prize.

Vazquez has a passion for what he does, and after seeing the show it’s clear he loves to entertain audiences.
