To The Circus

Last night, we went to the Carson & Barnes Circus held at Millford. The circus was held there to raise money for a bike trail. It was Abby's first circus.

On the way from the parking area, there were a few protestors from PETA on the sidewalk near the entrance protesting the circus. The were on the sidewalk, holding placards and asking if people wanted their literature. The protestors were well-behaved and polite, and the presence of Millford Police probably helped with that. While I disagree with them, it was commendable of the PETA protestors to behave in a proper and civilized manner.

Abby absolutely loved the circus. As a 2.5 year-old, she was amazed at the sight and size of the Elephants and the tricks by the Acrobats. She pointed at the Acrobats while they were at the top of a platform and said "Come down you're going to fall" - a very cute moment.

It was a fun circus and all the children present clearly seemed to be enjoying themselves. Oh, and the animals appeared well fed, healthy, and well treated. Simply a wonderful form of entertainment.
