About a month ago, I attended the Big Apple Circus when it was in town. I went with my husband and both our sons. It was held at Cunningham park in Queens. Very many years ago when I was in Junior High School, I remember going to the circus on a Friday night with some of my girlfriends and it was nostalgic to be back at the same place well over a decade later.
The acts were unique to the Big Apple and they incorporated parts of NYC life into the circus acts. For example the dog show was set to take place in central park because back in the day that was the weekend activity- walking dogs in the park and the tightrope walk act was shown to be walking over the Verrazano bridge.
The Big Apple Circus is such a lovely family tradition. It’s smaller scale than a larger circus like the Ringling Bros and Barnum and Bailey circus which is usually held at a much larger venue. I attended this circus in my childhood and I remember that it was my first time ever going to Madison Square Garden which was very exciting. The Big Apple Circus gives off a neighborhood vibe by being held at the park. The circus is complete with typical circus food which was available for purchase consisting of popcorn, soda, hot dogs, cotton candy etc. adding to the laidback feel. The kids loved it and it was quite enjoyable by all. (There are no pics of the show itself because photography was not allowed inside.)
