venice beach

we are coming out there with our kids. I know they have those circus acts that go on there that the kids may enjoy. Does that only go on during the weekend or would it be happening on during the week(Friday) as well?

There are no circus acts on the Venice Boardwalk. There are tarot card readers, palm readers, roller skaters, people who paint your portrait, etc.

Perhaps your kids would enjoy the performers on the Promenade. Those performers are there on weekends, and perform for tips.

You don't give the ages of your kids but you might want to take a look at the family travel section for LA at tripadvisor.com/Travel-g32655-s401/Los-Angel…

As the previous poster notes, there are no circus acts on Venice beach. I've been going to Venice beach on annual visits to visit family since my kids, now 12 and 10, were infants. How old are your kids?

I agree that the Promenade in Santa Monica may be more suitable for those types of performers that your kids would enjoy.

The have some "circus acts" on the boardwalk on the weekend, like the guy running thru glas or the guy who balance a woman on a chair on his chin. Stuff like that.

Always worth checking out, but your kids might enjoy the Santa Monica Pier more. They have some rides there(including a kiddie rollercoaster) and a midway with a lot of fun games
