Bringing The Pazzaz of Showtime Back Into The Lives Of Families
World Circus Day is on Saturday 16th April 2011. This day provides families all over the world with the opportunity to celebrate the magic of the circus. Only in it's second year eight countries ( Australia, Canada, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Sweden, USA ) will be participating holding events that celebrate an industry that has entertained families for many years.
“The World Circus Federation aims to bolster the Public’s awareness of Circus, and its prominent and popular place in Artistic offerings around the world.” says John Le Mare from The Circus Federation of Australia.
Families are encouraged to support the circus and show recognition and thanks to an industry that is often wrongly judged. They may wish to stage a special event, take the kids to the circus, throw a circus party, dress up like a clown, join a circus fan association or create your own circus, complete with the family pets.
In support of World Circus Day Aladdin's Circus Ticketing will donate $1.00 for every circus seat booked through their online system ( www.aladdinstix.com.au ) for performances on World Circus Day 2011. Donations will be split between The World Circus Federation ( www.circusfederation.org ) and The Circus Federation of Australia ( www.circusfed.org.au ).
For those local to Canberra Webers Circus will be holding an open circus workshop featuring training with lyra, juggling and hula hoops. This will be held on World Circus Day from 10am – 12 pm at Belconnen. For further information email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 0448247287.
