Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus is Coming to Town!

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to town!   The show is called Dragons and my kids can’t wait to go.

The circus is coming to town

The circus opens in a few days but we had a great opportunity to see a preview of some of the actual circus performers last week.  The clowns were crazy funny.  There was dancing, juggling, balancing, and a whole lot of silliness.  The kids in the audience were having a blast.

But there is so much more to a Ringling Brothers circus than just clowns.   There are amazing animal acts, acrobatics, and trapeze artists with a double decker trapeze!

My son can’t wait to see the martial arts performances and the motorcycle that rides across a high wire!

And of course, with a show named Dragons, you just might see a dragon while you are there too!

The circus is a great family friendly activity that adults and kids of all ages have enjoyed for generations  Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey produces a class act performance that really is “The Greatest Show on Earth”.   We hope to see you there!

All Access Preshow: Come out to the circus one hour before showtime and get a special “behind the scenes” sneak peek in the All Access Preshow.  Your family can learn how to juggle and balance just like a clown, meet the performers and collect their autographs, and even see an Asian elephant paint a picture with its trunk!
