Life under the big top can be appealing, but life around the big top is sometimes more meaningful. The traveling UniverSoul Circus set up its tent at the recently shuttered Jamestown Mall in Florissant on July 22, 2014, kicking off several days of spectacle by clowns, trapeze artists, fire dancers and animal acts. Breathing temporary life into the dead corridors all around it, UniverSoul Circus is the mall's final event. The circus runs through July 28, 2014.
