CIRCUS PARADE IN THE AIR … OUTDOOR VENUE TO AND FROM TO THE CIRCUSVILLE – BUDAPEST

Saturday, April, 19. 2014.

At noon on sharp Dr. Zsigmind KRIZA executive director of the MACIVA welcomed the mass of small kids, children, young adults, granmas’ and granpas’ infront of the Hungarian National Circus. This major gathering was previously held before the circus parade show took place at 1 p.m. inside the grand circus of Budapest.

The circus parade as a  custom became a tradition in the 19th century in the Unites States of America. Back then when the traveling circus troupes arrived to their next venue they marched through the streets in their outfits, costumes also with animals in the show as an invitation to join the coming show.  The circus parade was rolling along  in the States and made it through as a tradition in many cities in Europe.

The initiative of the International Circus Federation is sweeping around the world since 2008. It is held throughout the world on the 3rd Saturday in April.

The Hungarian Circus joined the call and to-day is having it’s 7th year in a roll in celebrating together with the public the international circus parade.

All those who shared  time, joined the parade on Saturday most probably were carried away by walking, turning around the Heroes’ Square back-and-forth along with the awesome artist watching the spectacular show.  Surely, the little folks had that evening sweet dreams and will  remember the day.

The weather was a great supporter to parade. Kept the rain away, which was clinging day-in, day-out.
