The circus came to town as the 20th annual Children’s Festival took place in Mission on June 12.

The event ran from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Fraser River Heritage Park, and organizers say it was the largest festival they have ever produced.

In fact, the 2016 festival was double the size of anything done before.

The Vancouver Circus School was a big hit as performers put on two shows and offered hands-on workshops for the kids.

The Fraser Valley Magic Circle also performed on the main stage.

The event is hosted by the Mission Arts Council.
