I received a flyer in the mail the other day advertising a unique running event featuring the Cirque du Soliel performers. The event is to raise awareness for the water problems in far reaching areas that don’t have the conveniences of water we enjoy in our community. This event helps by gaining media awareness and fundraising to help those areas. I asked if I could attend to photograph the performers in a public environment and was given permission so long as the images would not be used in poor taste.
This was a very well run event with plenty of staff and services. I was very impressed to see how available the performers made themselves to the public for photos and just good humor. There were many events for small children and adults alike. I saw children trying to use some of features like a tight rope exhibit and even the large yo-yos you see on television.
I would recommend this event if you are looking for something healthy to do as a family event or even just for a group building exercise. I saw many people that were laughing and having a great time just to be in the event. Many participants were only walking, but there were out having a great time in a beautiful location with terrific weather. So get out there next year and make the most or this great time of year!
