We Loved Cirque Italia in Palmetto Florida!

Cirque Italia Review

Last Saturday we had the opportunity to attend Cirque Italia in front of the Riviera Dunes Marina in Palmetto, Florida and it was amazing!

I had never been to a show like this before so I was excited to see what a water circus under the big tent would be like, and it certainly did not disappoint! 


When we arrived we grabbed some popcorn and light-up toys because, well, it’s a circus it’s a time for some extra fun.  Next, we went to find our seats, and because I was visiting on my own with the 3 kids I was very happy to see staff escorting guests to their seats as they entered the venue.  Little things like this make a mom whos hands are completely full’s life so much easier.


As soon as the show started, and these two clowns came out, I knew it was going to be a great time.  They had everyone laughing from the moment they took the stage and came out between each cirque act with new shenanigans that the kids absolutely loved!


The Cirque Performers were incredible, each performer had a unique talent that left us all in awe.  From tightrope walking to acrobatics, and even a cool rollerskating performance, this show was filled to the brim with amazing talent.


The water circus element of this show is something that makes Cirque Italia particularly unique, an ultra-modern water curtain surrounds the stage and controls every droplet that falls to the lagoon below, as words and designs are displayed on it throughout the performances.  


I can definitely give Cirque Italia two thumbs up!  They not only kept me in awe but also kept 3 kids entertained for the entire 2-hour show.  They were either laughing or staring with their eyes and mouth open wide in shock.

Our Thanksgiving Morning Tradition – Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

91st annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Our Thanksgiving Morning Tradition

As a little girl, I remember waking up to a call from my Nana every Thanksgiving morning, asking if I was watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.  My mother always hosted Thanksgiving dinner, however, Nana would arrive in the morning before Santa made his way down the streets of Manhattan.
I hold these memories close to my heart, and that is why I made sure to keep the tradition alive with my own children. 

We started another tradition a few years ago of spending Thanksgiving in Charleston, South Carolina with my brother and our parents.  We rent a large house on Kiawah Island and enjoy some family time, yet we still wake up every Thanksgiving to watch the dazzling floats and Character Balloons fill up the screen.

This year marks the 91st Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, and Macy’s has added some epic performances to the opening of the Thanksgiving Day Parade.  It will feature an all-star cast of celebrities all singing and dancing together in a performance of Dancin’ in The Street!  Also, as part of the first hour of festivities, Gwen Stefani will perform White Christmas at the Bryant Park ice rink!  New York during the holidays is always a breath-taking sight, while I wish I was one of the 3.5 million spectators that will be lining the streets of Manhattan, I’ll have to settle for being one of the 50 million people watching from the home, and cozying up with some coffee and my munchkins sounds just as good.  I can’t wait to see these performances though!

Make sure to tune in at 9 a.m. ET to watch the new opening of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!
