San Diego’s beloved Fern Street Circus has erected a permanent outdoor performance tent on a corner in City Heights!
Pedestrians coming down the sidewalk will soon begin seeing practice sessions and circus classes at the corner of University Avenue and 41st Street!
I learned about this cool development today during a big cultural celebration in City Heights, which took place in the adjacent, newly installed “Characters” sculpture garden. I’ll be blogging more about that event shortly.
As I walked around with my camera, I took these photos of the big circus tent and some of the colorful artwork that decorates the Fern Street Circus vehicles, which happened to be parked nearby. The cool graphics are the work of local artist Sergio Hernandez, who is also known as Surge.

Over the years I’ve attended several Fern Street Circus shows around San Diego and they are indeed wonderful.
Adding smiles to the world makes it a better place. And soon people walking and driving through City Heights will have another reason to smile!
