We had a super fun time out on Friday night, The Shrine Circus was in town over the weekend! The kids hadn't been to the circus since they were much younger, they didn't really know what to expect beyond the big top.

We arrived, received our passes and went on a VIP behind-the-scenes tour where we learned a bit more background about the circus, performers, trainers and animals who make the show what it is. It was really interesting to learn about the family of clowns and acrobatics that live the circus life! The kids got to meet (and make silly faces with) some of the clowns, too. We also met the two biggest stars of the show, the elephants!

Before entering the big top we were wowed by a death defying stunt to kick things off, daredevil Saturn Garcia was shot out of a cannon! What a way to get the crowd pumped for the evening! 

Inside the big top was buzzing with excitement between the popcorn and cotton candy, face painting and souvenirs. We got some treats and took our seats, the kids couldn't wait for the show to begin!

The Shrine Circus brought plenty of fun for the whole family with Ringmaster Richard keeping the crowd going all night. There were musical moments, comedic clowns, juggling acts and horseback flips. Amazing things like the Trapeze and Aerial acts, the dangerous Wheel of Destiny, the beautiful Zerbini Liberty horses and the show stealing elephants had the audience (including us) enchanted throughout. 

The kids had smiles on their faces the whole time. My daughter said her favourite part was the trapeze while my son loved the horses and elephants! It was a really wonderful evening, everybody had a great time!
