I went to the circus and I loved it!

Big Apple Circus

Animals in captivity really bother me these days.

It's one of those things - the more you know, the better we can be as humans. So, over the past few years, deep in my spirit, I have struggled with everything from zoos, to aquariums and especially the circus.

Well, I was invited to Big Apple Circus during their tour stop in Atlanta.

Big Apple Circus brings New York City's flare to a town near you. And anytime I get a chance to take my nephews to an experience, I jump on it. Also, if it's good enough for Chrissy Teigan and baby Luna, then it's worth a shot!

So we went to the media and immediately it felt  unlike other circuses that I have been to.

Oh, We’re just clowning around. Having a blast with my lil’ doods. Thanks for the invite @bigapplecircus #bigapplecircus —- With all the criticism the circus get these days, you’ll be relieved that is one that you will be able to experience with your family. Big Apple Circus is celebrating 40years and brings New York City flare to acts that are Sweet (ponies and dogs) Old school talent (juggling and clowns) and death- defying acts that will keep you in awe (flying trapeze). The clowns, Mr. Joe and Skip, are great comic relief. In fact my youngest nephew said “now that’s some good comedy.” Bring your family. It’s in Alpharetta through 2/25/18. • • • • • • • #circus #clowns #travel #blogger #wanderlust #adventure #blackgirlmagic #vacation #reporterlife #fashion #extraexp #vacay #travelblogger #blackblogger #blacktravel #fashionblogger #beautyblogger #travelhost #tvlife #beyondtheusual #essencetravels #thetravelwomen #shewhowanders #travelgirl #travelinstyle #blavitylife #livetravelchannel #bbctravel #shetravels

There were incredible performers, doing tricks  reminiscent of a Cirque du Soleil show. They left the audience oooing and aweing.

And the physical comedy of the clowns kept the crowd entertained. My nephew even said "now, this is some good comedy."

The signature horse act was majestic with white and black ponies that will keep a smile on your face.
All handled by certified animal trainer Jenny Vidbel, who also showed off her beloved rescue dogs. 

That's one of the things that really resonated with me - the only animals in the circus were horses and dogs, and they were all rescues.

We ate popcorn and cotton candy, soda and peanuts.

We held our breath during the flying trapeze act. We witnessed a quadruple summersault, to which the ringmaster said that only a few people in the world could do.

With the finale of the famed devils, and the circus' main attraction Nik Wallenda and The Flying Wallendas. We had to stay in complete silence as they pulled off the most outstanding high-wire acts. They are the greatest daredevils of our time! It was amazing to see in person.

Then after the show, we got to do a special meet-and-greet with the ringmaster and the cast of the show!

With all of the criticism around circuses, this experience is one that is not to be missed.
This was a circus that didn't feel inhumane. Rather, they seemed to have thought about how they could stay relevant and conscious about the performers well being.

Check out the video of my visit with my nephews:

So, does this post make you rethink going to the circus?
