This year's International Women's Day marked the second annual Viva La Muxer event, a celebration of women and benefit for Las Fotos Project. The event featured an all female line-up of visual artists, musicians, and spoken word performers. Shakti Circus rocked the event with roaming stilt walkers, who got the crowd dancing to the musical stylings of Gingee.
The Ultimate Tae Kwon Do Fighters Academy pulled out all the stops for their circus themed holiday event. They wanted to put on the biggest event in El Monte to show appreciation for their hard working students. We were asked to provide stilt walking and fire eating entertainment to wow their guests and hype up the party. Catch a glimpse of the fun in this short recap video!

The friends and residents of Broadview Residential Care Center were elated to visit with our Christmas stilt walker this holiday season. The 9 foot tall model posed for photos and handed out holiday candies, much to the delight of the residents. It's safe to say they brought us as much cheer as we brought them, and we can't wait to join them for more fun soon!
The Shakti stilt walkers were thrilled to celebrate Halloween with La Cañada Elementary for the second year in a row. This year they delighted guests as colorful fantastical creatures, standing up to 9+ feet tall!
Shakti Circus brought the circus to the Museum of Latin American Art this March for Viva La Muxer, a benefit for Las Fotos Project.
