The Circus is in Town!

So the Circo America is in town this week. There's an open field right next to the Maxi Dispensa, and all week they have been putting up tents and letting the animals out next to the road to graze. It's made for a couple interesting walks.
So that we wouldn't look like complete dorks, we decided to take a little girl in our hall with us last night to see the show. It was actually pretty entertaining. 
They had all the usual acts- clowns, animals, acrobats, jugglers- plus the Smurfs came out for a little song and dance, which I'm betting was some sort of copyright infringement, but I won't tell if you don't.

They had a really cute act, where some kids from the audience got to participate. The ninos all picked superheros that they wanted to be (The Hulk, Spiderman, Captain America) and the ninas were supposed to cry out what I'm assuming was some version of "Help me, Help me" then choose a superhero to come running across the stage, pick them up and carry them back across to safety. Well, when Captain America heard this, he took off running- bolted right off the stage and over the hurdles surrounding it back to his parents. I guess girls still have cooties for him. So we got a new superhero- Pokemon. Here is a video of what followed.

Even though the entire thing was in Spanish, it was really easy to follow. I guess all circuses are pretty much the same. We had a really good time, even if they didn't sell cotton candy, which I thought was a circus requirement. Also, these clowns weren't scary, so that was good.

Until next time...


  1. Love to hear Zach laugh so hard!

    1. I know! I think that's the best part of the video. It annoys him though.
