Susanville, CA: Hello everybody! It’s a beautiful summer day here at the 2011 Lassen County Fair! Circus Imagination’s first show of the day was at NOON and we featured the great 8 year-old performer Amanda, from Salton City, CA in not only one, but two parts: Tina the Tight Rope Walker and Calamity Oakley the Cowgirl – Check out her picture below! – The circus also had the amazing Zazel the Human Cannon Ball who startled the audience with his courage and dare-devilness!
The second show of the day at 2 PM had about 7 kids and 2 acts, Tina the Tight Rope Walker and the corageous Lion Tamer with his troop of monkeys, lions and clown gorilla! – Check out the picture below! After the show we had an hour of free face painting under the circus tent! Lots of red hearts, shooting stars, spiders and even some red flame eyes… The kids definetly use their imaginations on the requests of what they want me to paint on them: “Can you make like red flames around my eyes, highlihted in blue and chains going around a skull in my forehead and crossbones and tribals on my arm?” –
11 year-old Stephen asked humbly…
Last show of the day was at 5 PM and it was a busy one! We ask kids to show us big smiles to get picked to be in the circus, because we believe raising your hand up is for school! Check out some of those adorable smiles on the picture below! We had sixteen volunteers in the show and the following acts: Tina the Tight Rope Walker, Butterfly Ballerinas and Clarence the Clown, Cowboy, Champagne Sisters and the Human Cannon Ball!
Well that’s it for today folks!
See you tomorrow at the 2011 Lassen County Fair!
