This isn’t really my cup of coffee. But anything that gets me off the couch or the iPad screen and out the corners of my bedroom, I’d do it. Plus, it’s been a while since I’ve gone inside a circus tent. Their stop here was a two-week stay. And it was nice to know that I get to catch them at their very last performance here in Oxnard.
I couldn’t understand the language they speak – Spanish. Being that I’m a Filipino, I was catching some of the words they’re saying. And I lived here in a Mexican neighborhood, but still … it’s still gibberish to me. They have a lot of comedic bits. Luckily for me, circus is more visual than vocal.
The clown is more a stooge than anything. He gave us some good laughs, some wholesome and some requires parental guidance.
I loved that their clown had a crying moment and not all smiles. They turned it around when he looked for hugs from audiences.
Some acrobats …
… favorable to men. 😀
My most favorite part is the bikers.
It was a bit of a nail-biter. I whoa-ed on this one. There were three bikers. One of the bikers is a kid about 8 – 10 years old. You can see the kid on the second picture from the top.
What really fascinates me is the practices they made in perfecting this performance.
I can do juggling …
… but not this one.
Some more acrobats …
… favorable to women. 😀
What I really hate is the $30 entrance. Too hefty for me, given that it’s all the usual things. I also wonder if the old circus with animals are better to watch. Definitely more whoa-ier, but definitely more dangerous to go to. I’ve seen some horrifying videos on youtube of animal handlers getting attacked by the animals.
I just thought the price was a bit of a rip off. Then again, I definitely understood…..
That’s a circus life.
