Without enchanting aerial shows, grownups could only relive their childhoods by wearing oversize trench coats and pretending to be two kids pretending to be an adult. Marvel at acts of derring-do with this GrouponLive deal to Cirque Over The Park at Curtis Hixon Waterfront Park on Saturday, June 2, at 5 p.m. For $20, you get two general-admission tickets (a $40 value). Children younger than 12 get free admission.
Cirque Over The Park erupts into a glowing, community-wide celebration as the courageous aerialists, trapeze artists, contortionists, and other performers of Moving Arts of Tampa Bay prompt collective gasps from onlookers while they vault upside-down from flying trapezes and dangle fearlessly from colorful drapery. After staking their claim in the park with their lawn chairs, blankets, and bronze statues of the family dog, viewers cast their eyes skyward toward the daring acrobats and contortionists, who strike gravity-defying poses and sway back and forth on hanging hoops. While the lively troupe drops jaws, attendees can fill their conveniently open mouths with the wares of local food vendors, including offerings from 3 Suns Organic Bistro, Jimmy Meatballs, Tasty Stacy, Burger Culture, Foodeez, and Cupping Cakes. Live music complements the night’s astonishing visual arts, including energetic performances by Fencewalk Band, as well as Justin and Travis from The Groves. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will go to Tampa Bay Businesses for Culture and the Arts.
