6:00 PM Music: Southern Scratch Southern Scratch is only the best known of innumerable chicken scratch bands that are now flooding dance halls in the Southwest. Headed by Ron Joaquin, son of legendary waila musician Angelo Joaquin, this Native American-Southwestern crossover is exclusively instrumental and is performed to be danced to. For more than 50 years the Joaquin name has been synonymous with the very best of waila - the popular dance music of the Tohono O'odham ("Desert People") of the Sonoran desert. Waila dances start at sunset and last until dawn as the People dance to polkas, cumbias, mazurkas, boleros, shottisches and other couple dances performed on saxophone, guitar, bass, bajo sexto, percussion and drums as well as the occasional vocals. While we won't be going until dawn, we will be dancing the night away with Southern Scratch.

7:30 PM Zoppé Italian Family Circus Join us under the big top to experience the captivating Zoppé Family Circus presenting "La Nonna - Power, Beauty, Elegance!"

The Zoppé Family Circus welcomes guests into an intimate 500-seat tent for a one-ring circus that honors the best history of the Old-World Tradition. Starring Nino the clown, the circus features acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and plenty of audience participation.

The Zoppé Family Circus emerged from humble beginnings more than 160 years ago to become one of the most legendary circuses in all of Europe and like many good legends - it began with a boy and a girl falling in love. Napoleone Zoppé began his career in Budapest, Hungary where he met a ballerina named Ermenglida and founded a circus in Venice, Italy which still bears their name today.

Alberto Zoppé, Napoleone's great-grandson, inherited the circus, a grand equestrian in his own right. Alberto toured Europe with the circus since his youth and forged a friendship with famed actor/director Orson Welles. Alberto was then offered a job by John Ringling North of Ringling Brothers fame, who was putting together the circus acts for Cecil B. Demille's Oscar-winning film, The Greatest Show on Earth.

Alberto would remain in America and together with his wife Sandra, he has ushered in a new generation to continue the family tradition. His son, Giovanni revived the Zoppé Family Circus six years ago and has since been building its reputation with audiences and critics as an enchanting exhibition of traditional European circus. Giovanni is grateful for his family keeping the tradition alive, especially his father who performed with the circus into his eighties and managed to wow the crowd every time he stepped into the ring.
