There is just something about a circus that causes us to instantly revert back to childhood.Â The smells of popcorn, the sticky tasty of caramel apples, the first sight of the big tent, and of course the amazing experiences inside!Â If you are in the New York area, you are lucky to have a truly great circus nearby called the Big Apple Circus.
The first thing you will notice when arriving is that this isn’t your typical giant circus, where the seats feel as if you are miles away from the live performances.Â No, this show is all about being up close and really seeing everything right before your eyes.Â The furthest seat from the stage is less than 50 feet in fact.
When visiting the show you gather up some goodies at the entrance and find your seat.Â The show begins as the classic character of the ringmaster appears before you.Â He guides you into the wonderful show that is a full two hours of jaw dropping and side splitting entertainment.Â Don’t worry though, they give you an intermission in the middle so you can catch your breath!
You will see all the classic circus acts of times gone by at the Big Apple Circus, as well as some new and amazing feats.Â Laugh at the hijinks of the clowns, watch horses and dogs perform, see jugglers juggle just about everything in the room, and watch as acrobats soar overhead.Â There is more, but much of it has to be seen to be believed.
If you have a really big party or event coming up you can make it unforgettable by hiring the circus!Â Yes, Big Apple Circus can even come to you at your own venue.Â You can also enjoy strolling performers that interact with guests such as face painters, magicians, puppeteers, and mimes to name a few.Â They also offer educational shows to be performed at schools.Â Prefer the tent?Â You can also rent out the whole big top.Â Â This is a wonderful children friendly show that is amazing enough to keep the adults mesmerized too.Â Come relive your childhood, or make new memories with your own kids.Â Tickets are on sale online now.
