Animals steal the show at Stardust
EMERALD audiences had plenty to cheer about under the big top at the Stardust Circus as lions, dogs, horses, clowns and aerialists all worked their magic under the big top.
The young and young at heart watched eagerly as clowns skilfully threw knives around volunteers from the audience and monkeys paraded around the ring.
Circus-goer Jacayla Davy, 6, said her favourite part of the circus was the horse show.
“All the animals were really cool, the dogs and monkeys were funny,” she said.
With most of the acts putting a big smile on her face, Jacayla admitted she was on the edge of her seat watching the trapeze artists flying high in the air.
“It was pretty scary, they were very brave, I don’t think I’d like to do that,” she said.
Jayden Woods, 10, said the knife throwing was “pretty cool” and that it was amazing to see lions in real life.
“I really liked the dog show as well, they were pretty clever,” he said.
The Stardust Circus will wrap up its Central Highlands tour tonight in Blackwater at 6pm at the PCYC grounds. Tickets are available from the Blackwater Newsagency or at www.stardustcircus.com.au.
