The Biggest Little Circus In The World…

is what they call themselves. In their 59th season they are also known as the Wenatchee ( a city in Washington State where they maintain their headquarters) Youth Circus…and this weekend they performed three shows here at our current camping spot at Thousand trails RV Resort in Bow, Washington.

The troupe consists of about 50 members ranging in age from 3 to 18. Their season runs from late May to early September. Yesterday Mary and I with about 250 others watched their final performance for the season under a brilliant sunny day with an afternoon temperature of 79 degrees.

I took lots of photos…but unfortunately our seats had us facing west looking…more or less…directly in the direction of the afternoon sun…so photography was very difficult at best. Here are four photos…

On the way to the circus I spotted the top of Mount Baker in the distance…

The circus area…

The circus truck…

Finally here’s Mary with two of the performers…the girl is only eight years old…

Because the sun made photography so very difficult…plus I had to stay in my seat which also restricted my photography efforts…instead I’m going to give you a link below from the Memorial Day Weekend at another Thousand Trails location here in Washington. By clicking on this link you will get a much closer-up view of the performers… http://wenatcheeyouthcircus.com/page.aspx?PageID=18

I hope you enjoyed the photos. The young people were really great!
