ChiIL Out With ChiIL Mama & Midnight Circus #ChiILPicksList

HELP OUT: Last call to catch the incomparably fabulous Midnight Circus and help fund the award winning Chicago Park District. They've been favorites of ours here at ChiIL Mama & ChiIL Live Shows for years now. 








  
Midnight Circus Founders Jeff Jenkins and Julie Greenberg Jenkins announce a contribution of $800,000 to the Chicago Park District since 2007.  Midnight Circus in the Parks’ 2014 FUNraising Tour will come to a close this weekend with five performances under its intimate little big top tent in Welles Park, 2333 W Sunnyside Ave. 

Here's Julie, Jeff, & their awesome offspring!











These family-friendly performances will take place on October 17, 2014 at 7pm, and October 18-19, 2014 at 2pm and 5pm. All proceeds will benefit the Parks.



Created in 2007 to bring communities together in their local parks, Midnight Circus in The Parks has played to over 60,000 audience members and raised nearly $800,000 for local park improvements. Midnight Circus plays at parks all over Chicago, bringing families together from Englewood and Grand Crossing on the south side to Edgewater and Lincoln Square on the north side and all points in between.

Midnight Circus in the Parks features an eclectic ensemble of acrobats, aerialists, eccentrics and one rescued dog.  



The two-hour productions, which have toured eight Chicago Parks this season, take place under an intimate, little big top tent where no one has a bad seat.  This unique partnership between Midnight Circus, the Chicago Park District, all-volunteer park advisory councils and Midnight Circus sponsors is a Chicago tradition.

This year, Midnight Circus in the Parks earned the distinction of being the first and only American company invited to the prestigious Complètement du Cirque Festival in Montreal.

“This summer, alone, Midnight Circus in the Parks has played to nearly 15,000 people in parks throughout Chicago.  Our goal is to improve Chicago through our work and the proceeds are evenly distributed to partner parks to rebuild the parks one circus at a time.” says Jeff Jenkins.
