Cirque du Soleil: Crystal in St. Catharines, Ontario

We started our long weekend with a road trip to St. Catharines, Ontario to watch Cirque du Soleil: Crystal at the Meridian Centre. St. Catharines is the only Canadian stop on the North American tour for Crystal, a breathtaking acrobatic show on ice that is happening from June 30th to July 3, 2022. WOW! should sum up this show.

This show takes the audience on a journey into a whimsical frozen playground where circus art and the world of ice skating intersect with acrobatics and aerial feats. It is beautifully choreographed and artistically performed. This is a must-watch unique  Cirque du Soleil performance on ice.

We really liked how the show was engaging as the audience was involved from the start. Some of the audience were given snow balls to throw back, which was hilarious to watch! It was cool to see how many props were used as a part of the show. The costumes, scene changes, sound effects and music all tied together to create a wonderful performance. The lighting effects were creative and artistic. The space was very well-used.

Cirque du Soleil's Crystal is a story about a young writer, Crystal, who feels disconnected and misunderstood. One day, when she tries to escape reality and skates on a frozen pond, the ice breaks and she goes underwater. The story is about her thoughts and what goes through her mind during this near-death experience. She realizes that she doesn't need to change herself for anyone. This gives her the strength to break free from underwater.

If you plan to spend the day in St. Catharines there are a few family friendly activities to do, from enjoying meals from different cuisines to exploring different attractions. There are a variety of restaurant choices - one of our favourite dessert places in St. Catharines is Beechwood Doughnuts! When planning your trip, it is easier to pre-order your favourite doughnuts to avoid disappointment, as they run out of their many popular doughnuts pretty quick. 

We also took a quick hike at Short Hill Provincial Park. It was hard to find the trail entrance that leads to the falls as there are many trails to explore in the park. Morningstar Mill is another good place to check out and see DeCew falls. There is a waterfront area to walk around and enjoy the scenery.
