Clowns, dancers, jugglers, acrobats, tigers, elephants and even alpacas are on display at the United Center this week.

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is in town. The annual event opened Saturday and through the 28th.

Both the Chicago Bulls and Chicago Blackhawks embark on lengthy road trips to make room for the spectacle.

Members of the act were busy rehearsing Friday for their routine for next week's Thanksgiving Day Parade (watch a clip of their act above.)

If you can't catch the parade, purchase tickets and find showtimes here.
