Additional acts this year include:  

·         The handsome and charismatic Alex Lacey, who charms ferocious felines and audiences alike as the big cat trainer on Legends. His mixed cat act is one of the only performances of its kind to feature both lions and tigers. Alex grew up learning about big cat husbandry from his father and mother, a zookeeper and big cat trainer/performer respectively, and his family have raised more than 11 generations of lions and nine generations of tigers.

·         The China National Acrobatic Troupe, who perform the traditional disciplines of Diablo, Hoop Diving, Pole Climbing and Bicycle Riding while giving them an energized new look and epic physical construction that comes to life during the show.

·         The Cossacks, which features horses and riders navigating a 46-foot-diameter, specially-designed ring at speeds of more than 25 miles per hour. Some of the mind-boggling maneuvers include the five-man pyramid; the dead-man drag; and the seemingly impossible underbelly climb (while the horse is at a full-speed gallop, a rider climbs under and back over the horse!).  

·         The Torres Family, who perform with eight motorcycles in the 16-foot “Globe if Steel” at speeds that can reach up to 65mph!

·         The Medeiros “Hair Hang” Act features eight female performers from around the world including the USA, Brazil and Ukraine, performing daring acrobatics while hanging from their hair! They also perform a high-wire motorcycle act that’s not to be missed.  

Party of 5 attended the circus last year and had an amazing time! It was also Olivia's first time at the circus and her face was priceless! This year although Amelia will only be 6 months it will be her first time at the circus as well! 

My girls watched videos of LEGENDS and cannot wait until we get to go! 

When I was a kid my favorite part of the circus was the Unicorn!
