Circus Mojo holds International Festival

LUDLOW, Ky. (Perry Schaible) -- Run away and join the circus this weekend at Circus Mojo. It's hosting its second annual International College Circus Festival.

Circus Mojo is a training facility on Elm Street in Ludlow. Paul Miller, a former Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus clown, started it in 2009. The festival is three days of  workshops and panel discussions for people interested in the circus or considering a career.

They say people from around the world come to participate. Instructors say they have a passion for the art and they love to share it. "We work a lot with kids or people with emotional or behavior disabilities. We also go to nursing homes and we like to bring the circus to unexpected places, where people don't really expect to have a good time and accomplish something new, and we use these circus skills to surprise them, bring a little bit of joy and happiness, and then teach them confidence, self esteem and make good life choices."

A big performance is part of workshop on Saturday.
