A popular Chicago bakery celebrated its 100th year in business with a bash held under the big top.

Roeser's Bakery threw a 1911-style circus Sunday night, a nod to the year in which the Humboldt Park bakery was founded.

The party included circus performers like fire-breathers and jugglers. Partygoers were also treated to one of the bakery's famous cakes.

Roeser's claims to be the oldest family-run retail bakery in the city.
