2012 OREGON TOUR
Last summer's tour was “the best tour ever” just like it always is! From June 20th through July 8th, 2012 we gallivanted around Northeastern Oregon parading through the streets and putting on shows in Baker City, Enterprise, John Day, Pendleton, and Bend. The folks there were delighted to see the circus come to town. We were delighted to meet them and enjoy some amazing snow covered mountains, rushing rivers and gorgeous landscapes.
Some of our most memorable moments were the two prison shows that we did. The inmates were laughing, smiling, singing, dancing, rejoicing, and an atmosphere of gratitude filled the air. We received several heartfelt letters from prisoners after the show.
You can read some of these letters and other first hand accounts from last summer's tour on our BLOG or FACEBOOK
FESTIVAL OF THE RIVER
In August, we were honored to be part of the 23rd Annual Stillaguamish Festival of the River and Pow Wow. We put on two shows, paraded the grounds, and taught several workshops to visitors at this fun and free music, dance and culture festival in Arlington, WA.
