Cirque Du Soleil’s OVO is Coming to Baltimore this Summer!

spiders

For the first time ever, Cirque Du Soleil’s award-winning OVO is coming to the DC/Baltimore region. The internationally touring show is coming to the Royal Farms Arena from August 23 to August 27. OVO is the quintessential Cirque performance, filled with the acrobatic stunts, spectacular costumes, sets and theatrics audiences have come to love.

OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight, and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.  When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives.  It is love at first sight when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.  The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 12 countries specializing in many acrobatic acts.

Tickets are on sale now and start at $36. Purchase here.

Day Out with Thomas – B&O Railroad Museum

B&O Railroad Museum
901 W Pratt Street
Baltimore, MD 21223

This was our first trip to the B&O Railroad Museum and also our first time attending the Day Out with Thomas event so we didn’t know what to expect. It turned out we were pleasantly surprised by the museum and my girls were thoroughly entertained with all the activities offered at the event.

BOsignWe first entered the Roundhouse which is a really striking building with all the American flags hanging above the historic trains.

BOroundhouse1We walked through the interactive train exhibits and then my girls spotted the Thomas themed train tables. There were lots of different train and lego tables set up for the children to enjoy. In this area, there is also a Choo-Choo Blue Train Depot that my girls had fun playing in and dressing up as train conductors.

It was then time to board the train for our ride behind Thomas the Tank Engine.

BOThomasThis ended up being my girls least favorite part of the event. We waited on the train for about 10-15 minutes while everyone boarded. Then the train went on a very slow and not-so-scenic ride that lasted 25 minutes. It was just a little too long for them. They were anxious to get off the train and check out all the other activities.

BOclaraThe next thing that caught their eye was the carousel and another carnival type ride. It was nice that the lines for the rides were not long at all and did not cost extra.

BOride There were so many other fun things to do here including a train themed playground, crafts and tattoo stations, hay maze, and moon bounce. My girls especially loved the petting zoo that had 18 different types of animals.

The performance by Junk Rock was also a big hit with my girls. They were fascinated with watching them drum and dance and even joined in on the fun!

We spent three hours at the event, so my girls were pretty tired. There are so many fun activities that any younger child is sure to have a great time. My girls aren’t even huge fans of Thomas and loved it. I would definitely recommend this event to parents of toddlers and preschoolers.

On our way out, we stopped in the gift shop that was full of Thomas the Tank Engine merchandise. I let each girl pick out a toy and they were as happy as can be!
