The circus! The circus! I love the circus! Especially when it’s in my own backyard.
Every year, the grand-kids of a neighbor gather together and put on a fabulous circus show!
Annual Neighborhood Block Party and Circus
There’s juggling, unicycles, acrobatics, clowning around, and other acts. It’s always a good time–and there is always something new to see as the girls improve upon their skills each year.
While they handle the tough stuff, they let the neighborhood kids get involved too!
It’s a great display of teamwork and camaraderie. They encourage one another and try to show off each kid at their best. They are patient. Even in the heat, practicing before the show, they were all so very patient.
This is why we live in a small Indiana town. It’s a place where neighbors can get together and chit chat while the kids run around under the watchful eye of dozens of grown-ups.
The food doesn’t hurt either. We Hoosiers do like our food-centered gatherings, don’t we! Everyone brings a dish–it’s a big potluck! When it seems like the food is running low, more folks always seem to arrive and set down some more.
Kids and adults alike get a chance to play with everything–from the mini bikes to juggling! It’s a great time. I managed to “jump” in and join a game of jump rope. We even did a circle dance this year and learned a little clogging, Appalachian style. Now, does that sound like fun or what?
