Circus Imagination Show Times for this week are:


























Today was a very busy day for us we had a total of 4 shows! On the first two shows we were happy to welcome the SCHOOL TOURS at 9:30AM & 11AM! Meaning we had a bunch of hyper kids very willing to join the circus! We maxed out on those first shows reaching our maximum of volunteers – about 30-35 kids per show! It was so great we just looove filling up all those parts because we get to do the acts we don’t usually do all the time such as the circus Strongman!

At our last two shows we had about 15-20 volunteers at a time, they were a little more calm but had just as much fun! Below are some pictures of the highlights of the day!

Thank you to all the kids who joined our show today! You guys were awesome! You are the stars of the show! Don’t forget to have your own circus in your own backyard!

In the beginning it was fun. In the end, it was all for fun. And in between is where it tickles most!

We love to Clown Around

Chowchilla, CA: Hello world! Where do I start? Today was a very busy day for Circus Imagination here at the 2012 Chowchilla Madera County Fair! Our first show today was at 11:30 AM and it was one of a kind, we had 3 toddlers in it! It was a funny chaotic one-act circus, check out the picture below.

Our second show at 2:30 PM was a very big one and we posted the video on our youtube page! http://www.youtube.com/CircusImagination Click on the little camera below to watch it!

We are a children participatory circus, so we pick kids out of the audience to be part of our show. We ask them to show us big smiles to get picked, instead of the regular hands up. Look at those great smiles below!

In between our shows we always have some goofy kids hanging around… So why not play around a little and document them embarrassing themselves? Check out the two silly clown strong dudes below and the clown balancing the cane right next to them! Here at Circus Imagination a clown nose is like a green light to silliness, and if you can laugh at yourself, oh well… everybody else can too!

Our last show of the day was at 5:30PM and we had a bunch of come-backers! Below are our adorable Champagne Sister from Paris, France – the Circus Imagination acrobats.

Look at that… we all love to clown around! I’m pretty surprised I could convince 3 girls to get their faces painted like clowns!! And take a look at the upgrade on the Champagne sisters face design! Those girls below stayed at the circus all day hanging out! They played around our set so much that after our last show they put up their own circus for us to watch! It was so great! They had the Champagne Sisters act, the strongman and even a quick wild animal presentation! Too bad the Beatles cover band was going on at the same time on the main stage so my video of them doing the circus has bad sound. We love seeing that because that’s our main goal here: to get kids to use their imaginations and play outside! These girls will definitely go home and have their own circus!

Thank you to everybody that joined and watched our show today! You guys are great!

Oh well that’s it for today! See you guys tomorrow!


HEY GREG!à P.S.: Something else happened today worth mentioning. Right after our second show we had a parent come up to tell us he was a dragon at Circus Imagination in the late 1990s at the Merced Spring Fair! He remembered Caton “being this tall” – as he pointed out at his waist – and running around. That was when Greg Hegwer was the Ringmaster & Criss Raintree the Costumier! (For those of you who don’t know Carol & Caton are the second generation, Caton’s parents started the whole thing in the late 1980s with a couple friends).

Ageless Fun!

Chowchilla, CA: Hello everybody! It’s going to be a wonderful day here at the 2012 Chowchilla Madera County Fair! Yesterday we had three very fun shows, below are some pictures and if you click on the little camera you can even watch a 3min video of our highlights! The video is at our Youtube page, for those of you who don’t know it’s http://www.youtube.com/CircusImagination

Fun is definitely ageless. Don’t you agree? Where does that concept that “fun is for kids only” comes from? Here at Circus Imagination our motto is: If you can imagine it we can turn it into fun! Again, there’s no age limit for imagination. Even through the age range of our “target audience” is 3 to 12 year old kids, we have had volunteers from ages 2 to 50!

The more fun you have, the greater your value to yourself and to your society. The more fun you share with others, the more fun you have!

See you later alligator!
