Circus Near Me
The circus is one of the most unique entertainment events around. Long before moving pictures (later more commonly referred to as films or movies), radio and television – the circus was the most prominent form of entertainment. In fact, a traveling circus was quite the buzz when word arrived that it would soon be in-town. While a few aspects of the original circus have changed, most of the long-standing traditions remain. Here is a map of any and every circus in-town:
The circus dates back more than 250 years and many of the stables of the original circus remain including clowns, acrobats, trapeze acts, trained animals, jugglers, tightrope walkers, hoopers and unicyclists. Philip Astley is acknowledged as the ‘father’ of the modern circus when he launched his own circus back in 1768. Once located in a single setting – today several popular acts tour the world delighting fans of all ages.
