Bombay Circus @ SIAA Grounds | 01:00 PM – Onwards
A narrow entrance, lots of dust (if you are asthmatic, it is best you take your inhaler along), a little bit of a stench, an open car park. The Great Bombay Circus has come to Chennai (at SIAA Grounds, near Moore Market) after a gap of four years. Supposedly one of the oldest circuses in the country, this time around they have a number of attractions such as the cube jugglers from Russia and the walking caterpillars from Uzbekistan. It is said that The Great Bombay Circus was started in Hyderabad of the Sindh Province, now in Pakistan, in 1920 by Baburao Kadam and Kunni Kannan.
