Another circus is coming to Long Island, Brooklyn and Staten Island. We just heard about the Cole Bros. Circus – which is surprising since it has been around for 125 years. So we did a little research and found it's something you might want to check out.
Since this is their 125th Anniversary, they are celebrating with a special performance reprising legendary circus acts of the past along with showcasing the talents of cirque nouveau artists. There is a 7-man pyramid on the high wire – these acts always amaze me as I really feel for the guy on the bottom holding all these people on a high wire no less; also gymnastic routines, circus daredevils (with “the Globe of Death and Giant Gyro Wheel”) and of course clowns for a little comic relief. And, no circus would be complete without the animals, and there are elephants, camels, dogs, ponies and a mule. It is a fast paced two hour show – with something for everyone.
Let’s face it-a trip to the circus can break the bank, but what’s great about Cole Bros. Circus is the tickets are extremely reasonable ranging from $12 - $17 (not like some of the pricier venues which can get up to $75 a ticket). And here are some insider tips we have for you- Kids tickets are free with an adult ticket purchase if you print it out at freekidstickets.com. And, adult tickets can be purchased in advance with $5 off at tickets.com. Multiple shows each day are being performed at locations all over the area: Southampton, Greenport, Middle Island, Staten Island, Brooklyn, Oceanside – check out the full schedule here.
