Without a circus in town, audiences would have to quench their thirst for aerial thrills by watching window cleaners eating sandwiches on their lunch breaks. Take in flashier stunts with today’s GrouponLive deal to see the Piccadilly Circus at Putnam County Fairgrounds in Palatka. For $19, you get a family outing for general-admission seating inside the tent on Thursday, January 26 (up to a $40.95 value). The outing includes the following:
- Two adult tickets (up to a $40.95 value, including all ticketing fees)
- Four tickets for children younger than 13 (free with the purchase of an adult ticket, though typically limited to three passes per ticket)
Choose between the following showtimes on January 26:
* 4:30 p.m.
* 7:30 p.m.
Piccadilly Circus’s BLAST! show blows away audiences with a spectacle set under a capacious, 80-foot-tall big top. The 90-minute extravaganza features such death-defying acts as acrobats launching themselves out of catapults, showgirls balancing atop racing camels, and middle-aged men cutting back on their sodium intake. Ballerinas and bike-riding acrobats wrangle laughs from onlookers with off-balance antics while rotating wheels of death spin daredevils over the ring. Shows take place in a newly constructed big-top tent, featuring climate control and armrest-equipped, theater-style seats. Aggressively punctual guests can while away preshow time at the circus’ petting zoo, riding elephants, camels, and ponies while regretting youthful decisions to run away from the circus and enroll in actuarial school.
Though Piccadilly Circus offers a buy-one, get-one promotion and a coupon for free children’s admission, this Groupon still represents the best deal.
