A Retrospective - The International Monte-Carlo Circus Festival
 
The ' Festival International du Cirque de Monte Carlo' is the worlds most importat event in the circus-business ...and it is one of Monaco's most prestigious events of the year. Traditionally held in January it was created by H.S.H. Prince Rainier III of Monaco in 1975 which means that The Festival commitee's new president H.S.H Princess Stephanie of Monaco has decided to do something really special to celebrate the up-coming ICF-shows next January. The 2006 Festival will be a BEST OF of all Festivals that were held up until these days....

To celebrate this event with Monaco's princely family I decided to open this thread: To look back at the past Festivals and to look into the future of the great event.

Michelle thank you for the great photos! I just thought I'd bring to your attention that the first 4 from your 3.43pm post and and the first one from your 3.49pm post can't be seen and are just red crosses. Thanks again!
