Circus comes to Sparwood

The Circus Gatti rolled into Sparwood providing kids of all ages with entertainment and fun.

Sparwood's Mycah Sigurdson was a special assistant to the clown at the Circus Gatti in Sparwood.

With two show times in Sparwood, crowds of young and old headed to the circus show in Sparwood on July 25th. Based out of California, the traditional three ring circus and crew has spent many weeks on the road making stops all across the United States and Western Canada.  Here in Sparwood, kids were delighted to watch the show and take in all the sights and sounds.

 Features of the Circus Gatti show were BMX and dirtbike riders who made viewers adrenaline race in the globe of death and with fearless tricks and jumps, an amazing female contortionist who  astonished crowds with bending her body into numerous shapes and forms, ribbon dancers who captivated the crowds hanging high from the ceiling with only ribbons to hold them from falling, clowns that caused giggles from all the children, and more.

 The Sparwood Arena was turned into a full circus feel with stands of toys, light powered items, snow cones, popcorn and more.

 The Circus headed onto Alberta after leaving Sparwood.
