Strawberry Fun

Monterey,CA: Hello everybody! We are here at the Monterey County Fair for the 5th year, we have to say, it gets better everytime!
Our show times this week are 1PM, 3PM & 5PM.
We absolutely love being here! The fair theme this year is “very berry extraordinary” with the support from the California Strawberry Industry the fair is fruity and extra sweet this year! They even made one of the World’s Largest Strawberry Shortcake at the fair this last Thursday! You could smell it from 30 feet away! Look at the picture below.


Worlds largest strawberry shortcake

Here at the circus we have welcomed back many familiar faces, lots of our volunteers look the same but  are surprisingly taller. Good thing we have designed a bunch of new tall costumes such as the ferocious lions, the tutu tigers, the new muscular circus strongman, the primates fuzzy the orangotang and Mr. gorilla clown and even butterfly ballerina elephants!

Miss Gorilla Clown


Tutu Tiger

The Monterey County kids sure do have an amazing imagination. Some funny moments we have captured in our videos this week! To list a few:

-Random Screaming Butterfly Ballerina: She was so excited to be in the show she could not contain herself! After the girls came back from the act and sat down she kept on running around the stage, as the show continued! So funny!


Stampeding Elephant

-Stampeding elephant: They are such a perfect casting fit! About 4-6 yeard old they seldom misbehave, refuse to do the tricks with the wild animals and stampede the audience! Good thing they look so adorable along the way!

We also have new Champagne Sisters costumes, check out some of our friends of the circus below modeling them for us!

Horse ‘N Around

Monterey, CA: Hello everybody! Circus Imagination has been very busy here at the 2011 Monterey County Fair, so let’s catch up!
The first picture below is from Friday’s shows. The highlights are Tina the Tight Rope Walker and Calamity Oakley the Cowgirl – she cames back to be part of our show every year at the MCF since the first time Circus Imagination was here at this fair!
Saturday’s picture is the next one below with the Butterfly Ballerinas and the Cupcake Eating Competition hosted by the Ringmaster & judged by Costumier. It was sponsored by Mrs Delish Designer Cupcakes – who presented us with some out of this world cupcakes! The cherry bomb was definetly my favorite!
Today (Sunday) we had three awesome shows with great and enthusiastic kids and even a come-backer that was part of our show 4 years ago at the Kids Fest in Concord, CA – he is the lion tamer in the last set of pictures with the red curtains. Right next to him check out our new orangutan costume! Isn’t him fuzzy and hugable!?!
We have a couple more pictures to share. Since the fair theme this year is Horse ‘N Around at the fair the Circus Imagination poneys have been on the spotlight day after day! They are such a big hit nobody can get enough of their cuteness!  Photographer Mike Beck took a picture of our circus poney going through the ring of fire! Check it down below!
Last but not least is a picture of Ringmaster Caton & Costumier Carolina with a couple of our darling Circus Friends Wendy Brickman and Jody Hansen!
