Cedric Walker founded this one-ring circus in 1994 because he had a vision of creating an event that featured a large percentage of performers of color. What he brought to life is the high-octane UniverSoul Circus that combines dance, stunt, and acrobatic acts from around the world. The traveling show is headquartered in Atlanta, but has traveled as far away as South Africa. The red and yellow big top will take over Chene Park until Oct. 1, with various times and dates to accommodate families and large groups.
Times vary; 2600 E. Atwater St., Detroit; universoulcircus.com/detroit; tickets start at $17.
