The Big Apple Circus Steps Right Up to Atlanta for its 40th Anniversary Monday 05 February, 2018

Yay the circus is in town! I got a chance to go to the Big Apple Circus in Atlanta and I brought my friend and her family! I havent been to the circus in years! My friend Sas and her nine year old daughter have NEVER been, so this was a special treat for them. Also this was my early birthday event, the circus is always around my bday!


We are such big kids. Sas and I, was having more fun than Jordan (9). Sas husband I know had a good time too. You know how men are, act like they are so tough to enjoy some good entertainment, but on the inside they are beaming! 

World renowned for its one-ring, intimate & artistic style, where no seat is more than 50 feet from the performers, BIG APPLE CIRCUS is passionate about revitalizing the circus for modern-day audiences with unique and astounding human feats, innovative design and technology. The 40th anniversary season program features the famous seven-person pyramid on the high wire with Nik Wallenda and The Fabulous Wallendas and the daring quadruple somersault attempted on the trapeze by The Flying Tunizianis – the first time in circus history that both legendary feats are performed under the same big top. The record-setting acts are joined by BIG APPLE fan favorite Grandma the Clown and her comedic sidekick Joel Jeske, as well as Dandino & Luciana, a dynamic duo who combine speed, acrobatics and daredevil grace on roller skates; award-winning contortionist Elayne Kramer; master juggler Gamal Garcia; Jan Damm on the Rola Bola; acclaimed Risley acrobats The Anastasini Brothers (who broke the World Record for Most Flips on November 9, 2017); Ringmaster Ty McFarlan; and circus trainer & presenter Jenny Vidbel, who performs in the ring with 16 horses and ponies, as well as six rescue dogs.

I think one of the special perks of going to the Big Apple Circus, is that everyone gets a chance to meet some of the performers and ringmaster shortly after the show for a photo ops. Atlanta, GA as a stop on the National Tour during its historic and critically acclaimed 40th anniversary season. The full lineup of global artists and acts including 10-time world record-holding high wire artist Nik Wallenda, and fan favorite Grandma the Clown will perform in Alpharetta at Verizon Amphitheatre from January 26 – February 25, 2018, for a total of 48 performances.
