Redwood City welcomes the Italian traditional (all the way back to the mid-1800s) Zoppe Circus for four days of performances by Nino the clown, a host of acrobats, dancing canines and lots more, all enacted in an old-fashioned, low-tech way (the anti–Cirque du Soleil in a sense). The show starts Oct. 23 with a gala performance and runs through Oct. 26 next to the library in downtown Redwood City.
