1. An Incredible Atmosphere
This quirky Bohemian Circus is bustling with activity. While the children can enjoy face painting, balloon making on stilts, bungee trampolining, fire education and face painting, adults can enjoy drinks from one of the bars and delicious food from on-site food trucks. There is something happening for the whole family. We suggest getting there at least an hour early to enjoy all the circus has to offer.
2. The Food
We all love a good burger! Luckily the Bohemian Bus, an eatery which will have you seated right inside the Bus, scored 10/10 from us for their delicious original burgers. You can also enjoy a tasty meal of fish and chips from Gorgeous Georges Fish Bar.
