Step right up, ladies and gentleman, the Children’s Museum of Indianapolis presents The Circus, Starring You!
The Children’s Museum, of course, never disappoints. This newest exhibit gives kids the opportunity to be a part of the circus. This is a particular draw for me because I, myself, have never been to the circus. I suspect my fantasies of this nostalgic “greatest show on Earth” are likely not based on the reality of the circus so much as the cleaned up depictions from cartoons. However, the Children’s museum shares my vision and has given us everything that is great about the circus with none of the off-putting parts. This is great because my wife and I spent hours wondering what kids would threaten their parents with now that Barnum and Baileys has closed. “That’s it mom, I’m running away to join the Harlem Globe Trotters!” Good luck son, do you even dunk, bro?
The Circus- Starring You! (website) runs now through March 25, 2018 and is sure to please all the kids and kids at heart in your family. So get in your clown cars and head on down!
Hours & Admission: Tues- Sun 10AM – 5PM Learn about Family Nights and free days. Closed Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. Closed on Mondays through Feb. 27, 2017.
In late June 2007, Luis Ruvacalba removed his laundry from the dryer to find that he had rendered all of his undershirts pink and shrunk his favorite red University of Arizona sweater.
At that point – as he says: “I realized: I need a wife. I married Katie in Sept of 2007. Aside from one lousy pen left in my pants pocket and numerous dried on Conner Prairie stickers, the laundry has gone pretty well since then.” Luis has four children: Maggie- 7, Micah- 5, Millie- 2, and Merritt- 1. Each of them helps him sharpen his parenting skills in new and unique ways. “Without Maggie I’d never have learned to put on tights. Without Micah I would have the weakest MMA fighting skills on the block. Millie challenges me to improve my search and rescue abilities. Merritt gives me weekly lessons in Matrix style urine dodging. Together we are the greatest family to ever ruin your family’s nice quiet afternoon at the park.”
Follow along with Luis as he helps shows you the best places to let your family run wild.
