We have a tradition of taking our younger nieces and nephews for adventures or shows rather than buying them a lot of presents for their birthdays, especially since it is always so hard to figure out what they want or need. Often the things we do are not on their actual birthdays, but are at later dates and times. They are fine with this though, since we usually come up with some pretty awesome and neat adventures. They’ve learned it is better to wait for the cool stuff. This year, we took Nahila and Tehvia to the Cirque Dreams Holidaze. This was our first event for the first day of the new decade of 2020. Cirque Dreams is like Cirque du Soleil, only it is put on by a different theater group.
Cirque Dreams Holidaze was at the new event center in Aurora, CO, The Gaylord of the Rockies. We had never been there before. It is a HUGE complex and from what we could see, a beautiful hotel, that was beautifully decorated for the holidays too.
We let the girls pick out a present from the holiday shop. Tehvia picked out this cute little teddy bear, that she held with her for the rest of the evening.
This orb illusionist was very gifted at magically controlling the movements of his crystal orb.
The show was filled with so many talented artists, gymnasts, acrobats, and much, much more. If you have ever been to a Cirque du Soleil show, this was the same, with all the fun, colorful costumes, and performances set to live music. It was truly breathtaking and awe inspiring. It was a festive way to continue the Holidaze tradition. It is perfect for kids of all ages, “from 1 to 92” (Nat King Cole) . It was great family entertainment and we all had a fantastic time.
It is probably already come and gone for this Holiday or Holidaze season, but if it comes back to town next year, it is definitely a family fun, entertaining production.
