You don't even have to pack a bag for the "Vagabond Adventure," this year's Circus Flora show, which begins June 2 under the air-conditioned big top in Grand Center.
The one-ring circus is set on the Floating Palace, a riverboat that, before the Civil War, actually served as a circus venue making its way down the Mississippi River. On board the Palace will be favorite performers such as the Flying Wallendas, the St. Louis Arches, the Flying Pages and Nino the clown. New acts include the Olate Dogs and their canine tricks and the Riding Donnerts' horse show.
The adventure takes place through a storyline about stowaways packed into the Palace, dreaming of a future in the circus. But first, they have to solve a puzzle, save the boat and make it back to St. Louis.
On Wednesdays, the Circus Flora adventure is compressed into a one-hour "Little Top" show for smaller children.
Where: Grand Center, adjacent to Powell Hall, 718 North Grand Blvd., 63103
When: Thursday June 2-June 26
