Screen Free Week brought one of Villa di Maria’s favorite community gatherings – Circus Night!
The weather was just warm enough to enjoy snow cones – yay!
Getting into the circus state of mind with red noses!
We were joined by some seriously skilled face painters!
And, a perennial favorite, balloon animals (and other creations!).
This year Circus Night fell on the same day as Give STL day, and we celebrated reaching (and surpassing!) our goal by … giving our esteemed Head of School a pie in the face! She came prepared (read: she knew we’d knock this day of giving out of the park!) and took it like a champ.
Circus performers entranced their audience – laughter, giggles, and joy ensued!
Perhaps the best part of the night was just hanging out with friends and enjoying our beautiful campus on a perfect night!
The joy of Circus Night was captured brilliantly by the one and only Melinda Smith. Thank you Melinda!
