The circus is in town! There’s nothing quite like the circus; the painted faces and funny hats, the striped pants and acrobatics… It’s fun for all ages. This weekend and all through next week Puerto Rico is blessed with an international cast of circus characters. The first of its kind, Circofest has brought together artists from all over the world to bring joy and happiness to our little island.
Jugglers, clowns, fire breathers, aerial silk dancers, slack liners, and daring adventurous magical people of all kinds. This weekend they filled the streets of Old San Juan with their art and will continue to spread the joy throughout various parts of the Island during the week to come. I recommend it. For schedules and maps check out their page Circofest.com I really hope they keep coming every year and I can get better pics next time.
This wonderful initiative was coordinated by the local circus artist community in Puerto Rico. Some of the emerging groups and companies are so good, they really need to be checked out. They put on a really good show and also give classes, so if you didn’t make it to the Circofest, you can still fly high or play at acrobatics with this crowd:
