The circus in Los Angeles is hard to find anymore, but a traditional circus refers to an oval area with tiered seating under a tented top where performers include acrobats, clowns, trapeze artists, tightrope walkers, and other stunt-oriented artists performing with trained animals. Carnivals are traveling shows primarily composed of thrill rides, children's rides, sideshows, and sidestalls offering food & games. The circus and carnival equipment used for props and costumes includes the stalls, rides, ticket booths and multiple food booths (cotton candy, etc.). The fanciful stall dressings and costumes for performers, animals, and carnival/circus staff are also available for rental. In addition to filming, circus and carnivals are also used by event production companies or cities/churches for fundraising events.
