World-famous Circus Vargas has taken their family-oriented show on the road for 50 years performing for rock stars, movie directors, actresses, and more. Circus Vargas returns to the City of Temecula from March 21 through 31, 2019 celebrating their 50th Anniversary at the Temecula Promenade Mall. They will debut the exciting new 2019 Circus Vargas extravaganza, The Greatest of Ease, an homage to the golden era of circus in America, bringing acrobats, daredevils and flying trapeze! Circus Vargas has performed its Big Top style circus for Temecula in previous years and enjoys giving back to the communities they perform in by honoring community heroes. Circus Vargas representative, Rolanda Kaiser, is committed to creating a close and collaborative relationship with the City of Temecula.
Ms. Kaiser randomly contacted Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar, who coincidentally recognized her last name as the name of someone he knew a long time ago. The Kaisers have been involved with the Circus for many years. Her father, Roland Kaiser, was the Concessions Manager for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, in the 1970’s. While working there, Roland Kaiser hired a 15-year-old Mike Naggar to work in concessions and travel with the circus selling toys. Mr. Kaiser later became Circus Vargas’ Concessions Manager and became co-owner in 1989. Years later, Naggar visited Kaiser at a Circus Vargas performance in San Diego to thank him for the wonderful memories of working for Ringling Circus. Because of this shared connection to the Circus and their involvement in the special needs community, Mike suggested that Circus Vargas honor our heroes of the special needs community in Temecula during one of their shows.
Circus Vargas invites the heroes of the special needs community to a performance on Temecula on Friday, March 22, 2019 at 7:30 pm. The celebrated heroes will include Temecula City Council Members, Temecula Community Services Commissioners, Our Nicholas Foundation, Autism Society Inland Empire, Comprehensive Autism Center, and others.
