Have you ever taken your kids to the circus?

Not yet, but I plan to. We went to a small one when my daughter was 2.5, and it was pretty neat. Now that I have 2, I'd like to take them both.

I live near to Blackpool Tower which has a circus show on for 8 months of the year, they also do a Panto over xmas. I've not taken mine yet, as D won't sit still for very long and I don't want him spoiling it for others or distracting the acts. M has been with school and she loved it, I might take them towards the end of the season when it gets a bit quieter.

I refuse to because the circuss often abuse the animals. I would take her to one that is known for humane treatment or one that doesn't have animals.

I know it's crazy! 90% of the circus isn't even about animals anymore. The kids really enjoy it and so do my husband and I.

Because they say by supporting the circus you are supporting animal cruelty.

Yes we've gone to one of the bigger ones a couple of times. It always comes to town mother's day weekend so we go, the kids love it. Just a warning though you have to deal with the protesters when you go, it's not very much fun being told I'm a horrible parents because I'm taking my kids to the circus.
