Piccadilly Circus

The Piccadilly Circus is coming to Fort Lauderdale! Based in Sarasota, Florida (also known as the circus capital of the world), the circus is touring several cities and making a stop in town to perform for two days.

It follows a European-style circus format, a more traditional kind where all the action takes place in one ring, and very family friendly. The focus is more on the performers and keeping the kids entertained with circus antics. Performances include motorcycle daredevils riding inside the Globe of Doom, contortionists, aerialists, a 250-pound kangaroo and of course, circus clowns!

They also will be featuring an Elephants Extravaganza performance. These same elephants made national headlines recently. In late May of this year, the circus elephants helped out in clearing and lifting debris left by the devastating tornadoes that hit the Joplin, Missouri area where their scheduled performance was cancelled.
