There was no chance of audiences being left deflated as a pop-up performance took place this week.
A special taster of Blackpool’s annual circus festival Showzam! came to town, as Dizzy O’Dare drew in the crowds at St John’s Square with his Giant Balloon show.
The free shows were a half-term holiday teaser to the festival, which returns to the resort for the February half term with a programme of world-class acts on February 13.
Onlookers were wowed by Dizzy’s balloon sculptures, high energy and the giant balloon.
Helen Frost, audience development officer at LeftCoast which is organising Showzam! for a second year, said: “We can’t wait for Showzam! 2016 and we have some fantastic high quality acts lined up for the festival’s ninth year which we will be revealing soon.”
Headlining Showzam! in 2016 is French circus company Akoreacro in their UK debut, at Blackpool Tower Circus from February 13 to 20.
