Thursday, October 26, 2017

MONTEGO BAY, St James — The Suarez Brothers Circus, which has been entertaining hundreds of people at the Dump Up Beach in Montego Bay since October 2, has been held over in the resort city for another week.

According to administrator at the circus, Ivan Suarez, a decision has been taken to extend the performances in that city until October 30, due mainly to the overwhelming support from patrons in the region.

“We have great support from the people of Montego Bay for the shows. We are very pleased and satisfied with the response from the people who are turning out for the shows, so mainly because of that, we will be staying here (Montego Bay) for another week,” Suarez told the Jamaica Observer West.

The Montego Bay leg of the circus, which has been in the island since August this year, was scheduled to end on Monday.

Suarez added that he is also pleased with the response from Jamaicans to the circus when it was held in Ocho Rios and Kingston earlier this year.

The comedy skits involving the audience, the cute canines with their smile-inducing tricks, and the trapeze acts interspersed with magic tricks have been the drawing card for the circus, which has been without its traditional several number of animals.

According to Suarez, after Montego Bay, the circus will move to Negril for performances from November 2-7, then to Savanna-la-Mar from November 10-13, and then round off its performances in the western region with a stop in Black River from November 17- 21.

Performances in Portmore are also said to be on the cards, before the circus leaves the island in late December.
