Despite a serious accident last weekend in Rhode Island in which nine circus performers were injured, the show must go on.

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus has arrived here in Columbus for seven performances beginning tomorrow. We wanted to know how the accident in Providence affected performers in other cities so we turned to Ringling performer Ashley Vargas for look beyond the glitz and glitter.

Ashley Vargas is the Preshow Host for the circus. Or as she describes it: She gets the party started. The Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus performs at Value City Arena Thursday through Sunday.
