Sailor Circus kicks off its 64th season of "The Greatest "Little" Show on Earth" with the 2012 Holiday Spectacular - The Polar Express. Based on the story of a young boy who boards a magical train headed to the North Pole in search of Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, this circus adventure will embark on an extraordinary journey of entertainment that proves the wonder of life never fades for those who believe. "This year we are planning a magical holiday atmosphere," said Sailor Circus Artistic Director, Susan Loeffler. "The students, coaches, volunteers, and all of us here at Sailor Circus, are working hard to bring you a holiday extravaganza filled with all the wonder and amazement the circus has to offer." From cotton candy and hot chocolate to juggling and the flying trapeze, this holiday spectacular promises to warm the hearts of both the young and old alike.
