The show started a few minutes late. It was a good mix of traditional circus acts and newer stunts. They have a live band situated above the ring who accompany the various acts with a range of recognizable classical music. None of the music was too loud for little ears. There was one clown, who was not at all scary. He encouraged participation from the entire audience, and brought up serval members to help him with his acts. It was very funny to watch other people’s dads be circus performers for a night. The animal performers were a highlight as were the trapeze artists. We will be talking about the big swings and dogs riding horses at our house for quite a while. We found the fifteen minutes intermission was a great time to let our boy enjoy the snacks we brought. We appreciated that they do not have a ban on outside food since our son’s little buddy who also came is allergic to a few things. We went for a walk around the venders’ tents before returning for the second half of the show.
