I'm a fan of the types of circuses that don't abuse animals and can use talent and special effects to put on a fun show. We've seen some interesting ones roll through the Kalamazoo area before, but for the first time ever, an R-rated circus,  Paranormal Cirque III, will be coming to Crossroads Mall in Portage.

The event will be held at a rather busy time in the community, from August 3rd through the 6th. This is basically sandwiching the same time Kalamazoo Ribfest will be taking place at Arcadia Creek Festival Place, but there's plenty of time to enjoy it before and after Ribfest.

What Is Paranormal Cirque III?

A new show with breathtaking implications always poised between fun and the most uninhibited fear that will transport you to a dark world inhabited by creatures with incredible circus art abilities. A crazy yet fun fusion between Circus, theatre, and cabaret in perfect harmony with the evolution of a show that brings you back to when we dream ... and when we had nightmares and fantasies. Scare, encompass, amuse and surprise are the ingredients for a mixture of emotions impossible to forget.
