Best Circus Experiences In Charlotte

Circus entertainment grew out of trick-riding equestrian shows in England during the second half of the eighteenth century. Horses were the real stars of these shows! Then came acrobatic clowns on horseback, performing daring flips, balancing tricks and pantomime. America’s love with the old-time circus began in the 1820s. The traveling tent circus, an American innovation, was created by a New York entrepreneur. A menagerie of animals, enthralling all ages, accompanied the big-top shows. Performing arts dating back to ancient Egypt and China, such as juggling, were added to the evolution of this American institution. Two rings were expanded to ten, electrifying aerial shows and rope walkers made it the nation’s top drawing entertainment!

Best Ways To Celebrate Passover 2013 With Kids In Charlotte

Passover, or Pesach in Hebrew, is celebrated March 25 to April 2 this year.

It is a remembrance of the night when God passed over the homes of the Israelites during the tenth plague and the exodus out of slavery in Egypt to freedom. The focus of Pesach is the Seder. It is a symbolic-rich meal completed in 15 steps that tells the story of God’s grace from bondage to freedom.
