I have only been to the circus twice in my life but both experiences were memorable. So memorable in fact, that Oscar’s first nursery design was centered around the Ringling Brothers poster I’ve been hanging onto since my own childhood! Now that the Greatest Show on Earth is making its way through Raleigh, I can’t wait to take the boys!
This year’s theme is all about the Dragon! It promises to be a show full of fun and excitement featuring “one phenomenal Ringling Bros. circus act after another, from Shaolin Kung Fu Warriors, charging Cossack riders, magnificent Asian elephants, fierce tigers to the frenzied Globe of Steel.”
Tickets start at $15 through Ticketmaster or the PNC Arena Box office (walk-up only). Or you can call 1-800-745-3000 to order by phone.
As an added bonus, Ringling Bros. Presents DRAGONS opens an hour before with the interactive All Access Pre-show, FREE admission with your ticket. Families can participate in interactive experiences such as learning juggling and balancing skills, get performer autographs, see one of Ringling Bros. majestic Asian elephant’s paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece and meet the Ringling Bros. Clowns, whose side-splitting spoofs, absurd antics and comical parody are guaranteed to keep audiences roaring with laughter!
Will you be going to the Circus this week? I hope to see you there!
