A circus may visit Atlanta for a few days but soon packs away the tent heading off to the next city. Fortunately, Imperial Opa Circus is always in town. They put on a show the whole family can enjoy.

You’ll see 83-year-old Steve Seaberg, who has been an acrobat for more than 25 years, and Zac Binx, 23, who breathes fire.

Imperial Opa holds outdoor practices every other Sunday in Piedmont Park. They will be back May 25.
