The second edition of the International Circus Art Festival, scheduled from May 26 to June 7 in the Union Park, the Drumul Taberei Park and the Titan Park in Bucharest was opened on Sunday by an impressive parade throughout the centre of Bucharest, that starred great circus artists beside horses, zebras, camels and llamas. The parade followed the route Union Square – Halelor Street – Union Boulevard – Dimitrie Cantemir Boulevard – Tineretului Park.
The target of the festival is to turn Bucharest into s dynamic space and will provide children and their parents the opportunity to watch performances produced by three of the world’s greatest circuses: the “Salome” circus of Germany, the “Le Masque” circus of USA and the “Berousek” National Circle of the Czech Republic. At this festival, awards will be granted for the performances overall, not for the special numbers included in them, as it happens during similar festivals worldwide. Starting on Tuesday and up to June 6, the inhabitants of Bucharest may watch the performances of competing circuses, presented at 10.00 and 19.00, each day.
The tickets that cost from RON 30 to 50 will be available at the Titan Park, the Drumul Taberei Park and the Union Square Park, starting on Monday.
