From May 16th until May 31 the Big Apple Circus will be performing in Queens County, NY. The little minions had a blast with Mike and I. I haven't been to the circus in a long time and it was quite a treat. If you can't make the dates, their next gig will be close by. The show will be migrating to Long Island from June 5th to July 5th. That should give you plenty of time to take the kids (or borrow a few if you think you need an excuse to go because someone had the nerve to insinuate you may be a wee bit too old - LOL).
Accessibility information can be found here. You do not have to leave a loved one's wheel chair at home. There are services for people with mobility impairments and they even have an FM assistive system in the Big Top for the hearing impaired. Braille is available for the blind so they will have an idea regarding what they are listening to and sign language interpreters can be arranged if you make arrangements in advance. Don't forget to tell the ticket takers you reserved a headset for a hearing impaired loved one.
No excuse. Go have some fun. Pack a picnic for later. Scope the neighborhood restaurants. Lots of foodie paradise spots to choose from when you run up and down Union Turnpike. BTW, we had BBQ with the neighbors in the park so feel free to pack your cooler and the grill for the ones who don't want the Big Top. They can deliver it and meet up with you when the show is over. (Big Hint: text them during the 15 minute intermission so they know to start heading over with those ribs, hot-dogs and hamburgers - LOL) Make it an all day affair. Sunshine and giggling is good for the soul. :-)
Here's a little minion eye candy. Enjoy. :-)
