I love the circus. I always have. It reminds me of my grandmother, we call her Honey. Not every time, but often, when we visited her there would be a circus on television. Plus, she had these wooden circus animal toys that you could pose and stack and make do circus tricks - an additional treat when visiting Honey’s house.
Anyway, I love the circus. I love to be entertained. I love to watch, mesmerized as a daredevil or acrobat performs. I love the animals, the glitter, the showmanship. I love it.
The circus came to Rapid City! And it was a GREAT one!
They had tigers jumping through flaming hoops
This pony act kicked it up a notch with CAMELS! They were amazing! One of my favorites.
Black bears doing tricks and looking adorable and dangerous at the same time
Tightrope walkers, flying trapeze artists, and this guy all made me hold my breath!
I wanted to be one of the acrobats hanging from a rope or a hoop a la cirque du soleil. *sigh*
The dog act was especially entertaining, funny, and adorable – terriers doing flips, dancing, leapfrogging, and catching loops around their necks!
The elephants are always amazing – just watching them move is captivating.
They finished the circus with the giant steel Globe of Death! You know, the one with the guy on the motorcycle doing loops inside a steel cage. Awesome, right? Well, even more awesome with THREE motorcycles! And even MORE awesome with FOUR!! WOW!!
There were other acts as well that were all very entertaining. It was a quality circus! I am so thrilled to have such quality entertainment come to little ol’ Rapid City!
