The circus is coming! The circus is coming! To welcome the opening weekend of Cinderella Della Circus, Center for Puppetry Arts will be giving away clown noses to the first 50 kids who arrive in costume on Saturday, June 18 and Sunday, June19. Children are invited to come dressed as Cinderella or the Handsome Prince, or even an elephant, a clown or an acrobat - anything found under the big top.

But wait - there’s even more circus fun! Visitors can take silly photos at the Cinderella Della Circus Photo Board and post photos to the Center’s Facebook wall, or tag photos on Twitter or Flickr with #puppetnoses to be added to the Center’s Clown Family Album.
