The sky has been falling in California for the past week or so. I think I bragged about the perfect weather too much and jinxed us all. Despite the crazy downpour and plant-murdering wind, the highlight of last weekend was the UniverSoul Circus in Oakland. I was lucky enough to attend for free as a member of the media (!!), and it was crazy -- which you already know if you follow on SnapChat (@marymackensie). There were incredible dancers, gymnasts, contortionists, zebras, lions and a bajillion adorable children dancing in sync to “Watch Me” (Whip/Nae Nae). The performers are from all over the world, bringing traditional acts from Ecuador, Ethiopia, Russia, China and more, and the UniverSoul Circus has been touring for 23 years now. If you live in the area, I highly recommend checking it out. It’s in town until March 30 and you can get a discount on tickets with the code, “CALI.”
When was the last time you went to a circus?
