PHOTOS: Odyesso’s Big White Top goes up in Irvine

Workers raise a giant in preparation for Odysseo in Irvine. The tent, called The White Big Top, is 125 feet tall, higher than the Sleeping Beauty Castle in Disneyland which is 77 feet tall, and is about the size of a football field. The tent seats 2,000 people for the show, which combines equestrian arts and high-tech theatrical effects in live performance. The White Big Top is the largest traveling tent in the world.

In the shadows of the Big A, Michael Diehl keeps an eye on the rain from inside a tent along the banks of the Santa Ana River in Orange on Tuesday. Diehl said he's been homeless for six months - after exhausting savings on medical bills related to being shot in the head in 2009.
