Gia Bolton of the Cincinnati Circus was all wrapped up in entertaining and sometimes giving quite a scare to crowd at Fortress Fright Night held at Fortress Obetz on Oct. 27. The annual Halloween event has been calling the Fortress home since 2019 and played host to about 4,000 this year featuring inflatables, food trucks, The Cincinnati Circus Thrill Show, a Haunted Hayride, and more.
