behind-the-scenes look at Gatti Circus prior to the shows. In this photo the
rings and props are being setup.
Get ready for the smell of cotton
candy and squeals of laughter to flood your senses as Circus Gatti puts on
four-shows tonight and tomorrow at Heritage Park .
Gatti travelling circus has been entertaining families for the last
five-decades and features an array of talented performers and their K9 pals
that run through a bevy of crowd-pleasing routines.
This circus doesn't have elephants or
Circus staff whips up cotton candy prior to the
lions due to BC's laws but that doesn't
matter because the trained dogs are the best in the business and sure to put
smiles on kids' faces.
After WWII, US Army Major (ret.)
Matthew J. Gatti travelled around the US and Europe producing shows for
enlisted men and women and in 1963 he founded the American Continental
Circus and the Canadian International Circus which later became Circus Gatti.
As a child, Gatti was raised in a
Christian orphanage during the Great Depression and later in life became
known for his generosity and philanthropic nature by helping underprivileged
children and donating his time and show tickets to charities, hospitals and
even to penitentiaries.
There is an evening show tonight
at 7:30 pm and two more again tomorrow at 4:15 and 7:30 pm. So if you ever
want to see a three-ring circus show, or were considering running away to
join one, now's the time. For more information visit their website:
