You never forget your first circus.
Today we took Ed to the Big Top at St. Ives showgrounds to see Weber's Circus.
This is the real deal. The arena is releatively small - which ensures that every seat has a great view of the action, although some may be slightly obscured by the solumns holding up the tent.
The local government doesn't permit the use of animals, but in every other respect there is a full range of top circus acts. Solo trapeze, aerial steel ring, clowns (non-scary), contortionist, tightrope walk, juggling, dancers, aerial silk act, multiple hula hoops, and an honest to goodness wheel of death.
Edward's attention was captured for the nearly 2-hour show.
He told me the popcorn was good too.
The circus strikes the big top tomorrow, and then goes to give shows at St. Mary's and Liverpool. See if you can get along there. Tell them Bob sent you.
