Cirque-tacular Poster

Cirque-tacular has been working on something special these past months and their vision has finally been realized with Snowkus-Pocus. This theater installment is hosted by the Pantages Theater in downtown Seattle, Washington. Become dazzled by Cirque-tacular’s one-of-a-kind roster of ballerina's, acrobats, and other talented performers.


What to Expect

According to Cirque-tacular’s website, Snowkus-Pocus focuses on “young Brianna as she is stuck inside due to an approaching blizzard. Her dampened spirit turns to joy as her imagination takes her to an enchanted winter wonderland where she encounters the North Wind, Jack Frost, the Snow Queen, and Metamorphina, who is ever changing like the seasons”. Talented performers and dedicated production staff are all to thanks for bringing this production to life.

We all know that there are a million and one things to do in Seattle. It’s certainly hard to cut down your must-do list when you visit – after all, the list is probably pages and pages long! But if you manage to free-up some time to do just five things in Seattle this summer, here are our favourites…
1. Reach for the Sky
First of all, you have to survey your territory. A trip on the Seattle Great Wheel at the end of Pier 57 is a fabulous way to do this. Catch excellent city and water views from within a gondola on this 175-foot-tall waterfront Ferris wheel. Each ride takes about 15 minutes and includes three full revolutions of the wheel. If you have a little extra cash to flash about, opt for the VIP experience in cabin #42. This cabin features leather bucket seats, a stereo system and a glass bottom floor.
2. Hit the Water
Lake Union features seven nautical miles of shoreline that’s dotted with houseboat communities and restaurants. The Northwest Outdoor Center rents out kayaks by the hour. Some 20 different types of kayaks are available, along with expert instruction. You can also sign up for a magical Full Moon Paddle.
3. Ride a Duck
Yes, you read it correctly. Seattle’s ‘Ducks’ are actually vintage DUKW vehicles - amphibious landing crafts that were developed by the US Army during World War II. So hop on board and tour downtown Seattle by land and Lake Union by water. It’s certainly a unique way to see the city!
4. Food, Glorious Food
One of the oldest continuously-operated farmers’ markets in the US, Pike Place Market, presides over a nine-acre historic district in the heart of downtown Seattle. Go with an empty belly because the market features a mind-boggling plethora of mouth-watering goodies. You’ll also find ethnic groceries, arts and crafts, gift stores, vintage clothing, antiques and collectables.
5. Go Underground
Want to see the city in a whole new light? Then take The Underground Tour offers the 75-minute tour of the streets of the Pioneer Square neighborhood in the historic district. The tour takes you through the subterranean passages that once served as the main roadways and first-floor storefronts of old Seattle. The great fire of 1889 destroyed much of the original wooden city, but Seattle was rebuilt on top of the ruins.
