King City, CA: Yesterday was the first day of the 2011 Salinas Valley Fair and also the first time Circus Imagination is in town! We are very happy to be here and enjoying this new experience, new audience and new place! Talking about first times, maybe second … oh well not enough times because we are still counting: the Circus Imagination Big Top can be found in a very different place than usual at this fair. I’ll give you a few tips:
1- No grass underneath us but wooden floors,
2- No sky above the tent, but a very tall ceiling,
3- It’s a place that habitually hosts sports events!
I’m sure you guessed right! Circus Imagination is inside the gymnasium at the Salinas Valley Fair!
Our first show happened at 11:30 AM and our audience was exactly the way we like it: full and 90% made of children! It was kids day at the fair and Circus Imagination was happy to welcome all school tours in our show! We started with Tina the Tight Rope Walker, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8… 9 Butterfly Ballerinas! Champagne Sisters and a very busy Lion Tamer trying hard to control monkeys, elephants, lions and a very crazy bear!
Our second show started at 1PM and it was definitely one of those shows full of excitement and excited kids! We had Calamity Oakley our famous cowgirls and yes, the Human Cannon Ball finally showed up for work!
Our last show happened at 2:50 PM, odd time to announce on the microphone: “The show starts at ten to three!” The building we’re in was later turned into a wine tasting event for the remaining of the day.
This last show of the day had one of those extremely talented double performers we run by sometimes… Her name was Morgan and she was Tina the Tight Rope Walker and also a Butterfly Ballerina. “You guys need a magic act in the show”, she stated on her way out. How about Morgan the Magician? But we might need you to come be a part of the travelling circus!
Today Circus Imagination has 3 show at the 2011 Salinas Valley Fair: NOON, 2 PM & 4PM! For more information about the fair contact the main office at 625 Division Street, King City, CA 93930-3430 or give them a call at (831) 385-3243.
See you later alligator!
