The new Cirque du Soleil performance, Corteo, opens Thursday April 24 but Le Grand Chapiteau or THE BIG TOP will be raised today at Marymoor Park at 11AM.

The giant blue and yellow tent takes eight days to be completely set up; it is 66′ tall, 167′ in diameter, and is supported by four 80′ tall masts. It holds 2,700 people in a climate-controlled environment and is transported city to city by 63 tractor-trailers carrying 800 tons of equipment!
