Here comes the circus!

A few weeks ago we went to the Family Fun Circus.   I was very surprised when we pulled up and the circus was in the extremely old tent, it was a one ring circus, the benches were wooden and I’m pretty sure that they were around in the 1930’s.  Now that we have a child I have taken Van to the Shrine Circus every year and they rent out the Laramie County Community College horse area.  It’s very much a modern day three ring circus, and the parents pay at every turn.

I really felt like I was stepping back in time when I walked into the circus tent.  There were no bad seats in the tent, but we were in the front row.  And there was not much in the way of seating anyway; they had very few benches to sit on.  I felt like when we walked out of the tent we would be transported back to the 1940’s, where every man wore a hat and the ladies all had victory rolls and pin curls in their hair.  Here are some pictures of the performers.

    Oh what fun, nothing more fun for kids than a circus, I am amazed there are still circus’s like this, are those lipizzan horses?

    Hi Linda
    I don’t know what kind of horses they are, they didn’t make a big deal about them, so I’m guessing no.
