Come one come all to the greatest show in Louisiana at the Children’s Museum of Acadiana! The circus is coming to town and the big tent is setting up at the CMA for all the kids of Acadiana to learn and play. The Museum’s newest exhibit “Circus, Circus, Circus!” in the CMA’s Cypress Gallery will bring your kids the best of any circus. Kids will have fun in the CMA’s Pretend and Play Big Top where they can show off their best talents and even view Acadiana’s Smallest Circus: Buddy Olivier’s Stone Brother’s Circus. While the Cypress Gallery will be the main event, there will be a bit of circus throughout the Museum.

The Museum will celebrate the Grand Opening of “Circus, Circus, Circus!” with an extravaganza of fun for the entire family on Saturday, June 1, 2013 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event will begin with a ribbon cutting at 11 a.m. with JoJo the CMA Clown. There will be multiple events, workshops, circus crafts and special treats from local businesses going on throughout the day! The day will end with a special performance from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Ambassadors of Laughter at 2 p.m. The entire day of fun will be perfect for the entire family! Admission is $5 per person and tickets will be sold for face painting and caricature drawings from local artists. All proceeds from this event will benefit the Children’s Museum of Acadiana.
