Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ® Presents Built To Amaze!℠

The other night my family and I attended opening night of  Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ® Presents Built To Amaze!℠ .  We had an amazing time!  This show has something for everyone.  I suggest arriving an hour before the show starts so you can take part in the pre-show activities   The kids can meet the clowns, watch the elephants paint portraits and much more.

Once the show began we felt like we were part of it.  My girls loved the costumes, dancing and the acrobats.  Boys will love the stunts and the tiger trainer.  I have to say, there were many times I was on the edge of my seat watching the daredevil moves, and hoping no one fell.  

Truly entertaining Master of Ceremonies

The circus lived up to its motto "The Greatest Show on Earth".   We were also  surprised with the length of the show. It was approximately 2.5 hours including intermission.  Even during intermission kids will be entertained watching the sets being put together and watching where the actors will hide.

Acts that will keep you on the edge of your seat
My kids enjoyed the elephants dancing to Gangnam style, since it was their favorite song over the summer.

The animals that truly stole the show were the poodles. I wish I could train my puppy to listen as well as they did!
