Question: What if there are two really great special events in town for the same two days only? But one of those days is Monday, which is lovely for stay-at-home families, of which type we are not?
Answer: You have a very, very fun Sunday.
So, after the cake, before the theater, we went to the circus.
This one-ring circus troupe comes through town every year and sets up on the old hospital grounds, which is a big grassy field across the street from the new hospital grounds.
Has your front porch ever been 15 feet from an elephant and 25 feet from a portapotty, respectively?
We’d seen them set up every year but we’d never attended before.
We enjoyed ourselves so much that now I think it’ll be an annual affair.
There were acrobats and tigers and the juggler and the balancing act and the ringmaster and cotton candy.
And there were horses and dogs and of course, elephants.
With really enviable eyelashes.
