We are all so devastated by the news of the Circus leaving! Its a conflicting thing for people I know, but there’s something about it that makes me super sad. But never fear, the amazing Big Apple Circus is here with its amazing show!! Its a beautiful, dazzling and spectacular show that your family will love. You will surely not be disappointed with them. If you’re headed to New York consider stopping in to visit Big Apple Circus at Lincoln Center. What is really exciting about this particular performance group is that some of the performers are part of the famous Wallenda family, who most people at least partially recognize in relation to the circus. What a cool historical connected to share with the kids!! Launching in 1977, Big Apple Circus has become known for their community outreach programs and commitment to their community. As with a lot of things that have been around for awhile in the industry, they took a hit in 2016 and filed Bankruptcy. But they were fortunately saved and re-launched in time to celebrate their 40th Anniversary!!
I’m so excited to be able to offer my local readers a chance to win two tickets to the Big Apple Circus here in the DC area next month. Please take a moment to check out my original post all about the Circus, and find out how to score some discounted tickets as well.
The Big Apple Story begins in 1974 in Kent, England with American Jugglers, Paul Binder and Michael Christensen. In 1976 they took their act home after much success across the pond, and one year later they had their first tent-raising in Battery Park. They set out to create the not-for-profit, Big Apple Circus; which has been a huge success in New York, as well as traveling around the country. Giving back to the community is a large part of their core values, and they have created several community groups that do just that. Another cool thing about Big Apple Circus is that they also provide Autism -Friendly shows, partnering with Autism Speaks and the Autism Theater Initiative; which just shows their full dedication to families.
Good Luck, and see you at the Circus!!!
