5 Tips to Enjoy Cirque Italia West Palm Beach with Your Family

The circus is here! The circus is here! Cirque Italia, the first traveling Water Circus, has erected their blue and white tent in West Palm Beach. And, Modern Boca Mom got to experience the hi-tech show this week. Because my daughter had an early morning theater performance the next day, I invited my best friend, goddaughter (9) and her brother (6) to join me. We saw the opening night performance and had a wonderful time! And since there’s still a whole weekend’s worth of performances to go to, I’ve come up with 5 tips for Cirque Italia West Palm Beach that I wish I would have known about prior to going myself.

5 Tips for Cirque Italia West Palm Beach

  1. Get there early

Because the performance is located off of Belvedere Road directly across the street from the Palm Beach Kennel Club, it’s a busy area. Especially as it gets closer to showtime. Make sure you leave plenty of time to park ($5) and get your tickets from will call if you haven’t printed them. The line at the ticket booth was substantial as well.

2. Wear closed toed shoes

The Cirque Italia tent is set up on fairgrounds…which means a lot of dirt around the perimeter of the tent. Avoid flip flops or sandals for this performance. Your feet will be quite sandy if you need to use the restrooms (located outside the tent) or exit from anywhere besides the main entrance, which is carpeted.

My goddaughter Allison really enjoyed the show!
3. Bring cash

The food, face painting and souvenir vendors inside do not accept credit cards. Neither did parking. Be sure to plan accordingly and bring a couple twenties in cash if you need to feed or water your little ones. There is an amazing face painter at the venue that your kids will definitely want to check out as well!

tips for Cirque Italia
The colors! The water!
4. Kids ages 5+ will enjoy this performance the most

The circus acts at Cirque Italia are SUPER impressive. From a contortionist who bent in ways that had me sitting there open-mouthed to the most amazing jugglers and roller skaters I’ve ever seen, I  couldn’t stop clapping or yelling OH MY WORD!!!

tips for Cirque Italia

However, when the Cirque Italia clowns come out in between acts, there is some humor that will most likely go over your child’s head if they are under the age of 5. I would recommend leaving the preschoolers at home for this performance. Bring your kids who will truly be amazed by the whim and whimsy on stage!

5. Don’t plan on taking photos during the performance

Cirque Italia has a strict no-photo/no-video policy. The only reason I was able to take the photos featured in this post was because I had a media pass. Make sure to take any family photos before the performance, during intermission or afterwards. You’ll want to capture these memories!
