Circus in the City celebrates San Antonio’s long and storied connection to the circus. Boys and girls of all ages looked forward to “Circus Day” when the circus came to town. Glittering costumes, death-defying performances and exotic animals were all part of the spectacle that invited audiences to enter a world of fantasy. Colorful posters, costumes and artifacts from the world-renowned Hertzberg Circus Collection of the Witte Museum invite visitors to experience the wonders of the circus coming to town, to learn about San Antonio’s own circus stars and honor circus fan and collector extraordinaire, Harry Hertzberg.
