Bello Is BACK! The Big Apple Circus is Coming!

I recently recieved an e-mail from Sona over at American Pop Digital, spreading the news of the Big Apple Circus! I had never heard of this circus before, so I was delighted by the news of a circus relatively close by to where we live. We will be attending the show in Boston in May, which is only 3-4 hours away from us. It will be Connor & Merasia's first time seeing anything like that, and we are so excited to take them and see the show for ourselves!

From the press release website:

"Bello is Back! under the Big Apple Big Top performing breathtaking feats of humor in the theatrical focus of one ring with no seat more than 50 feet away!

It seems like only yesterday that this daredevil clown made his hair-raising New York debut with the Big Apple Circus. He’s been a big star all over the world ever since and was recently named "America's Best Clown" by Time Magazine.

Bello is joined by a world of stellar circus stars:
*From Spain, Picaso Jr. returns with his sizzling style and extraordinary juggling act — puffing into the air up to five ping-pong balls simultaneously, and catching them — with his mouth!

*From Russia, the Aniskin Troupe amaze with their bravura, athletic trampoline act — then soar into the Big Top stratosphere with their spectacular flying trapeze act!

*The Big Apple Circus' own lovely and graceful Regina Dobrovitskaya performs a shimmering spectacle on aerial silk ribbons!

*Equestrians Christine Zerbini and Sultan Kumisbayev present an electrifying riding act — standing atop galloping chargers, Roman–style!

*Luciano Anastasini’s Pound Puppies (all rescued from animal shelters) return for a joyously jumping mélange of human and canine acrobatics!

Of course there’s more and for an extra measure of love and laughter, there’s the Big Apple Circus' very own clown -- Grandma.

So pick your group’s dates and do like Bello—come on back! The Big Apple Circus is your circus, Big Apple is back in town!"

Not only is this spectacular circus a brilliant feat for adults and children alike, it's for a good cause. The Big Apple Circus is a not for profit performing arts and outreach institution.
