On Friday August 16th and Sunday August 18th your Summer Team 100 spent time with the Crystal Cirque du Soleil bus tour manager Carlos. Crystal is an arena touring show by Cirque du Soleil that started previewing to the public in October 2017, with an official premiere in December 2017 in Quebec. Since then, the show has toured all around Canada and the United States. Currently the show will be in Halifax August 28th to September 1st, 2019 at the Scotiabank Centre. From Canada, the show will be traveling to Mexico, Russia, Poland and the Ukraine.

 

 

 

Carlos’ main job is to drive ahead of the show and get cities excited to see Cirque du Soleil do their magic. A fun fact that we learned while hanging out with Carlos, Crystal is Cirque du Soleil's 42nd original show since 1984, and the first one done on an ice rink. If you are fortunate enough to find the big purple van dazzling in lights, you’ll find a man from Florida ready to make you feel so good you’ll forget where you were walking to before you met him. Carlos has been giving out scratch and win cards that have discounts on tickets for the show and potentially free tickets if you’re the special unicorn of the heard. Along with the scratch and win cards, he has one of a kind Crystal pens and all kinds of swag. The most fun part of all though is that you get to make your very own Crystal Cirque du Soleil GIF to share all over social media!!

 

Today, we got to hit the Halifax Waterfront with Carlos and his van. We had a blast blaring some tunes, having some laughs and of course keeping everyone refreshed with some good old fashioned free Oasis Juice. With the eye-popping Crystal Van parked next to us, we drew in lots of people who were interested in what the van had to offer, which in turn made it super easy to connect with people. This also meant tons of people were coming over to see what big prize we had to give away, aka the $1500 shopping spree to Park Lane Mall! If you plan on going to Cirque Du Soleil’s Crystal, you better be excited it looks insane. 

We’ll see you next week! Summer Team 100, signing off.
