5 Reasons a Circus is Fun for the Whole Family

31 May 2023

When most people think of a circus, they think of fun and excitement. And for a good reason – a circus is one of the best places to have a good time. A trip to the Big Top is enjoyable for the whole family, with plenty to entertain the little ones, bigger kids, teenagers, parents and even grandparents.

They are affordable

A circus is a fun and reasonably priced outing for the whole family. Tickets are normally relatively affordable, and families often receive discounts. Concessions are also reasonably priced, making it easy to enjoy a day out without breaking the bank. Circuses often offer a variety of activities that are included in the ticket price, such as face painting and clown shows. This makes them a great option for families on a budget. 

It’s educational

A trip to the circus is an opportunity to teach your children about teamwork and cooperation - as you watch the acrobats working together, you can explain to your children how important it is to work together towards a common goal. Likewise, the clowns' antics will show your children the importance of having a good sense of humour. Your kids might be inspired to try juggling or other circus skills at home, enhancing their coordination and balance abilities. Obviously some activities shouldn’t be tried at home - trapeze, for instance - but gymnastics classes are available if your children want to give it a go.

Bonding opportunities

A circus is a great way to spend time with your children. Laughing together and gasping in awe at the acrobats is something you can enjoy and talk about afterwards. Whether watching clowns or eating popcorn, a day at the circus is sure to create lasting memories. 

Perfect for a rainy day activity

What could be better for a rainy day than a trip to the circus? Enjoy the atmosphere inside the Big Top and forget about the rain falling outside as you’re transported to a magic world of amazing feats. 

Something for everyone

A circus is a great place for families to enjoy a day or evening together. There's something for everyone, from clowns and acrobats to jugglers and magicians. Whether your children are young or old, they're sure to find something to enjoy at the circus. And because a circus is affordable and offers a great way to spend quality time together, it's the perfect activity for families.
