I’ve always kept the kids away from circuses because I don’t believe in entertainment via performing animals. I’m sure the standards aren’t as bad as they used to be. I’m sure animal protection agencies make sure the animals are treated well. Still…I don’t like them.
But then this new circus had just arrived in town, and after Mike googled it, we found out it was animal free! Coming in at $86 for a family, I was skeptical that it would be worth the money, and certainly after arriving at the big top and seeing the less then predicted standard of the seating, I settled myself into thinking we’d have a night of disappointment.
Boy, how wrong I was!
The entire night was a series of “Wow!!”s. Acrobats, contortionists, clowns that weren’t creepy…it was amazing! The kids go to gymnastics class one night after school, so the show totally interested and amazed them. Megan now wants to be a circus acrobat!
