Ladies & Jellybeans!

Watsonville, CA: Hello everybody! Circus Imagination is lucky to be back at the 2012 Santa Cruz County Fair! We love this fair and the great feedback we get from the public! This week the children really made us laugh and sometimes even put a new spontaneous spin in our show! I heard the funniest things such as:

Ringmaster starts the show saying: – “Ladies and jellybeans welcome to the circus…”

In the meantime, on the blue tarp where the kids wait to perform Tina the TightRope Walker starts giggling loudly together with an elephant. Their dialogue goes:

Tina: -“Ladies and jellybeans? Does that mean boys are the jellybeans and girls are ladies?”

Elephant: -“I’m a jellybean!”

Tina: -“Then I’m gonna eat you!”

She starts playfully pretending to bite the elephant. The other boys, a lion and the cowboy, sitting around them start to scream: “I’m a red jellybean,” “I’m a peanut butter one!”

Oh well by then the Ringmaster was staring at us waiting for Tina the Tight Rope Walker to come on stage. She is the first act in the circus, but the conversation was so cute and funny we all got caught up on it. Even myself, the one who’s supposed to put some order in the circus! Or at least send the kids in on order! Me and the kids got an evil look from the ringmaster, and the show went on!

Here are some pictures from this week’s fair and our wonderful volunteers! There’s nothing like a child’s honest smile to melt our hearts!

 

I found this cute CLOWN POEM online that I would like to share with you guys:

Mr. Brown, the circus clown
puts his clothes on upside down.
He wears his hat upon his toes
and socks and shoes upon his nose.

He ties his ties around his thighs
and wraps his belt around his eyes.
He hangs his earrings from his hips
and stockings from his fingertips.

He puts his glasses on his feet
and shirt and coat around his seat.
And when he’s dressed, at last he stands
and walks around upon his hands.

–Kenn Nesbitt

 

Hopefully we’ll see you next year again!

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!

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!

Hot Hot Hot! AV Fair 2012!

Lancaster,CA: Hello everybody! Circus Imagination is here at the 2012 Antelope Valley Fair! It is hot out here, the temperature has been around the 100s all week, but we do have one weapon against this heat: misters! So if you come to the fair and you need a place to cool off come sit down underneath the blue & yellow big top by the kiddie carnival and get misted!

We have 3 shows everyday at 5PM, 6:30PM and 8PM! These past couple days we have had some great kids (and teenagers) in our show, even with this extreme heat they were still full of enthusiasm and energy! We also have a new set of costumes for the Champagne Sisters – you can see it in the picture, they are really sparkly with beautiful sequin butterflies!

Check out some of our star kids on the picture below! See you soon!
