I'm looking for an adjective which essentially means "of or relating to the circus." My context is:
As they stood in the doorway, taking in the circus-like activities around them...
But "circus-like" is garbage, can anyone suggest a good adjective to use in its place? Alternatively, I could replace the entire described noun ("circus-like activities") with something better. I suppose I could just called it a "circus" directly, which will probably be my fall back.
I'm not entirely oppose to making up words, but it would need to be easily comprehensible to the reader. I was thinking something like "circusian" or "circusean".
