Look up….look wayyyy up!  Yep, that’s the Big Top which means the Shrine Circus is in town!!

We were invited to attend the opening night of the circus last weekend and of course we were thrilled and to say the kids were super excited would have been an understatement.  From the moment we could see the Big Top in the distance, the kids didn’t stop smiling!

Before the show started we were given a special behind the scenes tour of the Big Top and to see the animals getting all prepped for their big performances.  Now I know most of us wouldn’t want an audience when we’re having our shower but thankfully the elephant didn’t mind us watching him get his spray down before the show. It was the coolest thing to watch as the elephant completely cooperated during the process and even helped out by lifting his foot to be washed.  It was so cute to watch the elephant interact with the circus employees as he would playfully poke them with his trunk. We also got to watch the tigers (from afar) resting up for the show and the horses looking beautiful.  The best part of the behind the scenes look was to hear about how well all the animals are cared for.

Ringmaster Richard Curtis

Once we grabbed our hot dogs, snow cones and caramel corn and took our seats we were greeted in song by the charismatic Ringmaster, Richard Curtis.  Richard was an awesome ringmaster that kept the crowd engaged with his booming voice, good looks (for the ladies) and all around enthusiasm.  You could tell he loves his job!

Tigers, Trapeze and Elephants…Oh My! 

Here we gooooo! Now I don’t want to give away the entire show as I feel you need to experience this amazement for yourself but i’ll give you a little peek into some  of what you can expect under the Big Top through pictures!  Get ready for amazing animals, feet juggling, heart stopping stunts and SO much more.  Watching these performers you will be dazzled by their strength, courage, love for the Circus and the overwhelming feeling of family!
