CHICAGO (CBS) — The Midnight Circus is usually an after-hours affair, but its troupe will perform during the day as part of a popular partnership with the Chicago Park District coming up this fall.
As WBBM Newsradio’s Regine Schlesinger reports, back in 2007, the Midnight Circus staged its first show in a Chicago city park when aerialists, acrobats and clowns played Welles Park at Lincoln and Montrose avenues.
hat event planted the seed for what has become the Circus in the Parks program, which this year will expand to seven parks.
Proceeds from the $15 tickets will help fund improvement programs at all the host parks.
