Sailor Circus kicks off its 64th season of "The Greatest "Little" Show on Earth" with the 2012 Holiday Spectacular - The Polar Express.

"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."
