Last night we surprised our girls by taking them to the Big Apple Circus. This traveling circus comes around every year and we always go. The theme changes from year to year – this year it was “Times Square”.
There are so many things that make this little circus so much fun….I love that they use actual musicians instead of recorded music….
It is a small venue so any seat you purchase is less than 50 feet from the stage which makes it more fun to watch…and the fact that they pull audience members into their acts is always fun… This clown showed this little boy how to spin a plate on a stick. (Oh, and did I mention the clowns aren’t scary or creepy?)
This performance had tight-rope walkers that were fascinating to watch….how one jump ropes on a rope that high in the air is amazing.
This pair of acrobats showed off their unbelievable strength…
