PICCADILLY CIRCUS BRINGS BIG TOP FUN TO
GRAYSLAKE FAIRGROUNDS IN GRAYSLAKE, IL
SEPTEMBER 4 – 9!
This edition of PICCADILLY CIRCUS is called BLAST!  for good reason. The Producers who also produce the world famous ICE CAPADES promise non-stop fun, comedy & nuclear thrills.

Racing camels, the largest herd of performing camels in the world is one of the animal features of the show.  Oka, a 9000 pound Asian elephant stands atop a 3 foot round ball & rolls across the circus ring, showing the amazing balance of these giant behemoths.  Oka is joined by a herd of African & Asian elephants and dancing zebras.

The Romanian Olympic High Bar Team performs feats that prove why these athletes deserved all their medals. The giant catapult sends acrobatic daredevils flying high in the air while others dive from the very heights of the Big Top; a Big Top that soars 80 feet in the air.

One and a half hours of surprises with sound, lights, music & special effects that'll blow you away. PICCADILLY CIRCUS is presented in a brand new European Big Top that soars over 80 feet into the air.  Every seat is theatre style. The Big Top is climate controlled & the feeling is up close and filled with fun, and excitement.

Come early with the family and enjoy the Circus Fun Zone with Elephant, Camel and Pony rides, & a Free Petting Zoo starting one hour prior to show time.

Tickets and Show Times are available online at www.thefuncircus.com or by phone at 877-373-0477.  All seats are general admission.  Advance deals include Free Kids & Two-For-One Adult tickets.

Beware of the scam Piccadilly Circus pulls on unsuspecting customers when purchasing tickets. We received a free ticket offer in the mail and when we called the toll free number on the ticket two weeks ago were told that two children would be admitted free with the purchase of every adult ticket at $8.75 for the Aug. 21st performance in Melrose Park. Because we were planning the event for my 8 year old son's birthday and weren't sure at the time how many people would be attending, we declined to purchase the tickets over the phone and were simply advised that we could get them at the box office. Imagine my surprise then when we showed up yesterday with four adults and eight kids and discovered that the adult tickets were $38 each on the day of the show WHICH THEY NEGLECTED TO TELL US OVER THE PHONE!! We explained the situation to the woman at the ticket counter and even spoke to her manager "Jordan" who was argumentative and rudely told us we were out of luck. Having expected to pay only $35 for the four adult tickets, we were then faced with the choice of either telling eight excited children that we had to cancel the trip to the circus and go another time, thereby spoiling my son's birthday celebration, or pool every last dollar in our wallets together to scrape up the $154, leaving us with no money for refreshments or souvenirs. In the end, I wish we had checked their web site instead of calling the ticket office, as their misinformation cost us an extra $117. Cheats!

please note this event is not at the Lake County Fairgrounds. The correct address should be: 50 S. Rt. 45, Grayslake, IL 60030 (corner of Rt. 45 & Rt. 120)

Any circus that uses wild animals for 'entertainment' should be avoided if not banned.

The Piccadilly Circus is a very clean fast moving show that is just good family fun. When you consider kids get in for free, the over all cost to take a family is not that unreasonable. I for one had a great time
