The best and coldest spectacle comes into town once a year.

The event is called the Snow Circus.

Lions, bears and tigers all on parade gliding gracefully with their handlers.

Slick frozen surfaces sparkling under massive spotlights cause big crowds to pour in from the surrounding countryside to see a show.

The Summertime Snow Vendor; he hatched a plan this year to steal their winter secrets for his own.

Year after year he shovels snow from the surface to store deep in his freezing cave.

He grows tired, now, of the cold, of the dark. Off to the show tonight.
