DANBURY, Conn. -- The circus is coming to town on Saturday, July 23, with the free Family Fun Festival on the CityCenter Danbury Green.
The Nimble Arts Circus will take center stage of the event, which will feature aerialists, jugglers, games and family fun. Food and ice cream vendors will also be on hand.
Nimble Arts was founded by identical-twin aerialists Elsie Smith and Serenity Smith Forchion to create inventive works of theatrical circus.
The rest of the ensemble includes performers formerly with the world's leading theatrical circus companies -- including Cirque du Soleil, Cirque Eloize, Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus, Pickle Family Circus and Circa -- and the troupe of jugglers and aerialists and acrobats have won numerous awards for their individual talents.
The event will run from 3-7 pm. on the CityCenter Danbury Green at Ives Street. It's presented by CityCenter Danbury and sponsored by Danbury's Promise for Children Partnership.
