My First Visit to a Circus

My First Visit to a Circus

It was during the school holidays last year. I was feeling bored and restless until one day when I came across an advertisement in the papers about a circus coming to my town. Naturally, I became curious and excited as I had never been to a circus before and looked forward to seeing a show that night.

We arrived at the circus grounds early to buy our tickets. I started exploring but, when I heard the growling of tigers and lions, I felt scared and ran back to my parents. Soon we were seated and the show was about to begin.

The first item was a comical one performed by monkeys dressed in coloured suits and little hats. They rode on horse-back round the ring. I really laughed at such a funny sight for they looked like tiny men. Next, entered two pretty girls in blue-and-silver on a trapeze, with two men on another trapeze. They kept the spectators spellbound with their skilful stunts, swinging and exchanging places in the air to the accompaniment of soothing music. It was thrilling to watch them.

Then clowns in baggy costumes and funny, painted faces made their appearance. Suddenly, as one clown cried, I saw a spray of water squirting out from his eyes and he made everyone laugh with his antics, especially when he went tumbling down and his red nose shone like a light.

There were many other interesting items. I felt uneasy when the lions performed their act and heaved a sigh of relief when they were finally locked up again in their cage.

We went home happily after the show and I felt that the circus is a good form of entertainment - a welcome change from television shows.
