15 highlights from Toronto's first circus sideshow fest

Toronto's first ever Something Strange Circus Sideshow Festival premiered this past weekend in front of a large audience at the Mod Club. Organized by mentalist Mysterion and teratological historian J. Tithonus Pednaud, the show brought together a variety of performers, including an aerialist, a sword swallower, a former WWE wrestler and a slew of masochistic gross-out acts.
