Roll Up, Roll Up, It’s Circus Time

We don’t like circuses that exploit animals.

But we LOVE circuses that exploit, I mean celebrate, humans!

We recently went with some friends to see a performance by our local community based circus troop and I’m really glad we did, because it was fantastic, entertaining and a real celebration of local talent! Here is a little taste of what we enjoyed when we ran off to (not join) the circus! 🙂

There was fairy floss and face painting, and a free circus workshop outside the tent before the performance started. A few of the performers were demonstrating some of the apparatus and the kids were able to have a go of some things, too. Not these though!

Molly and her friend decided hoops were the best bet 🙂
I think she needed a MUCH more capable assistant if she had any hope of staying upright on the unicycle!
For an amateur circus troop, the performers were really entertaining and pretty slick, and some of them were quite young.

A bit of loopy hoopy talent – this guy was REALLY funny!!
