We received the opportunity to attend this year’s circus at the Denver Coliseum themed Dragons and it was a good show. I have to say, last year’s show (which I wrote about here) kept the girls more entertained because they had an opportunity to burn off a lot of steam before the show – we got there early enough last year because of the animal open house, a box lunch by Feld Inc., and then just enough time for the pre-show fun.
This year, we barely made it for the pre-show fun and then had only 10 minutes before the pre-show fun ended. In any case, the girls danced a bit and then wanted to dance some more- so they danced in their chairs. As usual, the most captivating part for my kiddos was not the dare-devil acts but the animals, and the clowns. They loved the tigers, lions, horses, elephants, and … did I mention, clowns?
We had a great time and the girls were squirmy enough that we had to leave at intermission not to mention it was past our Kindergartener’s bedtime- she reminded us several times that she needed to go to sleep.
In any case, the first act was almost 1 hour and 15 minutes! The acrobatics, the clowns, the animals, and the amazing feats of all the performers kept us engaged and on our toes. There were a few scary moments with the Lions and Tigers… well, not for us but for the trainer. There was also an acrobat act with two women who hung from their hair – not kidding. The show gets it name for the theme- Dragons and the Kung Fu trained artists were incredible! They even jumped through fire blindfolded. Whew! That was scary. The guys balancing motorcycles and turning them around on a thin tight rope… whew! That was death defying. The Show is in Denver, at the Coliseum from September 27 through October 7.
