HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -- The rain on Thursday didn't stop preparations in Hartford for the big Cirque du Soleil show.
Its newly-designed white-and-gold "big top" was raised downtown Thursday afternoon, ahead of the LUZIA production set to open June 19.
More than 60 workers pushed more than 100 supporting poles to raise the canvas to its final position on Market Street.
The big top seats more than 2,600 people.
LUZIA runs through Sunday, July 21.
