It was kind of a spur of the moment decision to go after I got a coupon for work, but it was really fun and we're glad we went. Part of what made this circus so awesome was that it really wasn't that awesome. At times I was actually afraid the "death defying" acts really would end in death. The tight rope walker slipped, the trapeze net was set up incorrectly, the blind-folded guy on the spinning wheel walked right into a bar, and the motorcycle cage was rocking like crazy before a couple guys ran out to stabilize the supports. Good times!
This guy built a tower of chairs one at a time - adding a chair, then climbing up on top. After the last chair he froze for at least a couple minutes trying to get his balance back before the final pose. TA-DA!!
The spinning wheels of death - this part was crazy and one of Dave's favorite acts
At intermission by the bear in the chair - we weren't going to pay $$$$ for their photo and took our own
The very talented elephants
Motorcycles in the cage (of death) - I thought it looked small for one bike, and then they threw three more in and it really started rocking!
