The City of Temecula Welcomes Circus Vargas Honoring Heroes in the Special Needs Community

The Circus is coming to town! World-famous Circus Vargas has taken their family-oriented show on the road for 45 years performing for rock stars, movie directors, actresses, and more. Now, Circus Vargas returns to the City of Temecula on March 12th – 23rd. Circus Vargas enjoys giving back to the communities they perform in by honoring community heroes. Circus Vargas representative, Rolanda Kaiser, is committed to creating a close and collaborative relationship with the City of Temecula.

Ms. Kaiser randomly contacted Temecula Councilmember Mike Naggar, who coincidentally recognized her last name as the name of someone he knew a long time ago. The Kaisers have been involved with the Circus for many years. Her father, Roland Kaiser, was the Concessions Manager for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, in the 1970’s. While working there, Roland Kaiser hired a 15 year old Mike Naggar to work in concessions and travel with the circus selling toys and to travel with the circus.

Mr. Kaiser later became Concessions Manager for Circus Vargas and in 1989 became co-owner. Years later, Mike Naggar visited Roland Kaiser at a Circus Vargas performance in San Diego to thank him for the wonderful memories of working for Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Because of this shared connection to the Circus and their involvement in the special needs community, Mike suggested that Circus Vargas honor our heroes of the special needs community in Temecula on Circus Vargas’ Opening Night.

As a parent of an 11 year old child with special needs, Ms. Kaiser along with Circus Vargas would like to invite the heroes of the special needs community to their opening night performance in Temecula on Thursday, March 12, 2015. The celebrated heroes will include Temecula City Councilmembers, Temecula Community Services Commissioners, Southwest Riverside County Autism Task Force, Our Nicholas Foundation, and others.

Please join the City of Temecula in honoring these community heroes. Circus Vargas will set up its iconic Big Top tent at the Temecula Promenade Mall located at 40820 Winchester Road #2000, in Temecula.
