The Razzle Dazzle of the Circus returns to celebrate Kla Ha Ya Days

  • Written by Valley View Staff

Now that the Greatest Show on Earth is no longer, there is a little circus that could…and will make your circus dreams come true – Venardos Circus! The amazing singing and acting circus out of Los Angeles was a last-minute addition to the Kla Ha Ya Days festivities last year and proved so successful, the circus is coming back to entertain kids of all ages, with shows running Wed, July 12th through Sun, July 16th at Harvey Field next to the Carnival, 9900 Airport Way in Snohomish.

Under a brand new red and white striped tent – the Big Top – Master of Ceremonies Kevin Venardos, will welcome you with song and dance. Then he’ll introduce you to stunning  acts   of   dare  devilry, incredible balancing acts and fascinating juggling while clowns tickle your fancy and funny bone. The 80 minute Broadway show with Cirque quality acts and an intermission will also include the Kla Ha Ya Days theme honoring the county’s heritage farming families: Home Grown Snohomish.

There is a free pre-show event an hour before where you’re welcome to view the Big Top, sit on a hay bale and interact with the performers. How about a selfie? That, too. Tickets for the show can be purchased online at;  adults $25 & children $15.

After five years of perfect compliance with environmental permits, King County’s Carnation Treatment Plant earned the coveted Platinum Peak Performance Award from the National Association of Clean Water Agencies.

To be eligible for the award, the plant had to meet stringent pollutant removal requirements for its discharges under its National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit.

The Carnation Treatment Plant has been in operation since 2008, serving about 2,000 people who live and work within the Carnation city limits. With its advanced technology and innovative design, the Carnation Treatment  Plant  also produces exceptionally high-quality recycled water that’s being used to enhance wetlands and preserve local habitat near the Chinook Bend Natural Area.

The  plant  has been designed with numerous green features that minimize impacts on the environment, conserve resources and maximize energy efficiency.
The plant was also the recipient of the Washington State Department  of  Ecology’s “Outstanding Performance Award” for perfect compliance with all permit conditions in 2014.
