Circus Flora: Pastime

When: Tuesdays-Thursdays, 7 p.m., Fridays, Saturdays, 1 & 7 p.m. and Sundays, 1 & 5:30 p.m. Continues through July 3 2016

In the old days a 30th anniversary was celebrated with the gift of pearls. In the modern era, the gift is diamonds. Circus Flora is clearly a modern bunch, because for its 30th anniversary the one-ring circus will become a diamond: Pastime, this year's show, is a celebration of baseball. The tumbling St. Louis Arches, the high-wire-walking Flying Wallendas and those daring young men on the flying trapeze are a stand-up triple, but the air-conditioned tent is like stealing home. Circus Flora: Pastime is performed 7 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday, 1 and 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1 and 5:30 p.m. Sunday (June 2 through July 3) at the Circus Flora Big Top (3511 Samuel Shepard Drive; www.circusflora.org). Tickets are $10 to $48.
