Have You Been To The Best Circus Ever?

Hey Cuties,

I had an action packed weekend and I’m going to share it all with you this week.  Last week the fam and I had a fun night under the big top. It was opening night of the UniverSoul Circus.  The UniverSoul Circus is in its 24th year and still going strong.  The kids are Circus vets, the sitter had been taking them since they were itty bitty people.

This is a sponsored conversation written by me and UniverSoul Circus. The opinions and text are all mine.

Almost show time…

With four complimentary tickets in hand we set out to enjoy the best circus ever. I like to see how they change it up year to year.  This is what I like to call an all inclusive circus. They have entertainment from all around the world. No matter what shade you are you will see someone that looks like you.  UniverSoul Circus isn’t just a circus honey, it is a party and they know how to keep the party going. Every year I see people with and without kids in attendance. I see babies and grandmas and great grandmas.

Seated and ready…

LittleCuteLips was giddy in her seat with excitement. She is a music lover and the music was non-stop. She knew a lot of the words and would sing and dance along. When she didn’t know the words she was just dance.  They play the current hit songs and the kids go wild. Then even play some old school for us and the generations beyond us.

These ladies had the place lit for real; they came out and did an incredible limbo with fire while in these beautiful full and colorful costumes.

I don’t care how old I get I will always be fascinated by stilts. These fellas danced and kicked their legs and ran around. HOW SWAY?

They had  contortionist like I’ve never seen before. OH MY GOSH! Talk about wonderment and awe those young men were like rubber bands.

Fresh The Clowns

These boys get down, they know all the latest dances and the kids go crazy over them. If you’ve ever heard of  the dance craze JuJu on that Beat and the #FTCChallenge then you are looking are the creators. They created the viral dance sensation that had old lady, news correspondents, kids, parents and more juju’ing on that beat.

Who doesn’t love to see a man flying and flipping in the air?

It isn’t the circus if they don’t have animals.

The animals are a very small part of the show.

    I have never been to this but I have heard about it and the entertainment looks great! I don’t know how they do all those acrobatic moves! That is a beautiful family photo too!

  2. Ariel

    Aaaah! I used to go to the Universoul Circus all the time when I was a kid. I’d almost forgotten how much fun we’d have until this post. I have to find the statewide schedule and take my son. I know he’d enjoy it as much as I did.

  3. LeShelle, host of MRTV

    I don’t have many regrets in life but that time my son told me, “You’re never too old for the circus,” after I passed on free tickets is one I’ll never forget. I believe circus excitement keeps you young in spirit!

    That sounds like so much fun! We love going to the circus and this one sound way better!! I would love to take my kids to see it.

  5. Jeanette

    I love going to the circus. When I was a kid we went every couple of years and I was always amazed at what they can do. I would love to take my kiddo to the circus now. I know he would love it as much as I do.

      Jeanette, I love that. Growing up we went to the circus every year. It was an activity that I looked forward to as a kid. I love that I can give my kids the same memory.

  6. Alli Smith

    I love a good circus and I, too, will always be fascinated by stilts! I will never outgrow a fun circus and this one sure does look like fun.

  7. Anosa

    Oh wow UniverSoul Circus sounds absolutely amazing and looks like such a lovely family event.

    A couple of months ago we watch the Cirque de Soleil in Manila and it was spectacular. This one looks so amazing too. I bet kids had the best time.

  18. Our Family World

    I have always loved the circus. My parents used to take me and my siblings to the cirucs everytime they would have a performance near our area. The Universoul circus looks like a really great show. I wish they’d perform in our area too.

  19. Christy

    It looks like you had so much fun!

  20. Kita Bryant

    I have been to a few circuses in my day. None of them, however, even compare to universal. That is an amazing show.

  21. Amanda

    My family and I choose to not attend circuses because of our personal beliefs. I’m happy to see that your family enjoyed yourself and had a great time together.
