Big Fun under the Big Top

Today I took my kids to the Big Apple Circus.

It was their first trip to the circus so they didn’t know what a treat they were in for.

The Chinese Acrobats were favorites for sure.

There were also some animal acts — horses, dogs, even an African porcupine and a capybara.

The juggler was impressive, at one point he had 7 balls in play!  There was also a very talented hand balancer/contortionist.

The kids loved it all.

The highlight, of course, was the grand finale act… the Flying Cortes Family — the Trapeze Artists!

The net was right over Wendy and it was all very exciting.

We had a great time.  One of the nice things about the Big Apple circus is that it is a very small venue with no bad seats in the house.    We were also able to take advantage of a coupon code making the performance quite affordable.   If you have a chance to go, I think you’ll love it too!

The Big Apple Circus is playing at the Dulles Town Center through October 10th.
