    Dang, their website isn't loading. I presume this is similar to Cirque du Soleil? If so, it will be an amazing show!

    It's working again, probably had issues after they aired it on the news. This is definitely going to look interesting outside of Grand Boulevard.

    entertainment brought to you by Sandestin..

    I think its going to be terrific to have something so different here to go check out during the summer. as long as this is not a warm up/pre-Disney invasion, I'm good.

    That is great news for Grand Boulevard in Miramar Beach. Perhaps the 10 p.m. nightly local news will run the story they did at 6 p.m. again. Excellent, unique coverage for South Walton.

    I'm really excited about this. I hope this does well the whole time so that we can continue to get good stuff at this venue.

    Me too!

    There are quite a few Cirque du Soleil imitators out there, and that is great for small towns like ours- we get a Cirque-style show without the high Cirque price!

    Grand Boulevard has lots of overflow parking via several lots that are currently never used. I think they'll be fine, though Destin Commons is a fine shopping center, too. :D

    I've never had a problem finding a parking space at Grand Boulevard. My parking space is typically within 100 feet of wherever I am going.:idontno:

    Worst case scenario if the cirque comes to town and there isn't MORE parking, I'll just park in the giant Publix lot. God didn't give you feet just so you could push the gas pedal. :roll:

    Wish they would advertise it as being in South Walton at Sandestin in Miramar Beach instead of Destin, where it is not. Those coming from Bay County, that is getting a lot of the TV ad coverage, would be glad to know that it is 30 minutes to one hour closer being in Miramar Beach in South Walton, versus Destin over in Okaloosa County.

    Going to order my tickets soon. Trying to decide if I should get GOLD/CENTER. Would you let me know where you all were seated Kurt and what you thought about the seating.

    Thanks

    Kurt just goes to pet the elephants, I doubt he will actually sit down. ;-)
