The Revelstoke Peforming Arts Centre circus camp was last week

The circus was in Revelstoke last week.

The annual circus camp was hosted by the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre, with dozens of kids taking part throughout the week.

It culminated in a show under the big top in Queen Elizabeth Park on Friday, July 21. Local kids performed on stilts, the trapeze, the hammock, did clown routines, danced and more.

The kids show was followed by two professional shows by Dr. Von Houligan’s traveling circus.

Check out pictures from the kids show below.
