Run Away to the Circus
If you visit St. Louis in the early summer, you're likely to see the circus—not just at the big top, but at pop-up events all over the city that feature mini acts. Even after the season ends, Circus Flora keeps performing, like during their holiday collaborations with the St. Louis Symphony. As for the main act, the theme changes each year but is always accompanied by live music, a flying trapeze, and great seats (each one is less than 43 feet from the ring). St. Louis is one of only a few American cities with a resident circus: Catch it on its home turf, or look for it on the road at events such as Charleston's Spoleto performing arts festival.
