Last weekend Macomb’s YMCA had their third annual Circus Show. The show is a culmination of the circus sessions throughout the year and the kids absolutely love it! I’m lucky enough to be friends with the amazing woman behind this circus community, Amy Fansler. She has done such an incredible job growing the YMCA Circus from nothing to where it is now.
The first year, I was blown away by how awesome of a job she and the kids did and every year since then I’ve continued to be amazed. The performers and the program has grown by leaps and bounds in these three years. In year one, there was a bunch of clowning around, some stilt walking and a lot of gymnastics. Now the YMCA Circus has clowns, but they also have a Trapeze, Cloud Ropes, Trampolines, Ball Walkers, Jugglers, Unicycles and more!
Every May they put on the Macomb, IL YMCA’s Greatest Show. Don’t miss it next year!!
