The Greatest Show On Earth!

Last night we attended the opening night of Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Barnum 200! And. It. Was. Awesome!

It’s been a few years since I’ve been to the circus and this was the first time the girls had been to any circus.  I definitely think we’ve set the standard high for all future circuses.

When we arrived, we were greeted with the circus pre-show. A fun-filled time where families could actually come down on the floor, see circus tricks up close and personal, meet some of the performers, and just have fun! I love that Ringling Bros/Barnum & Bailey does this. It’s makes the whole experience that much better. (Note: Show up early so you can do this!)

Circus Pre-show

The show itself…Spectacular!!! From start to finish, you are being entertained, amazed, and dazzled.  Every act was done with the utmost level of professionalism that both appealed to kids of all ages and adults of all ages. I don’t know that I can truly describe how awesome it all was, so I’ll let some photos do the talking…

Opening Parade
Dancing Tiger
The Ulaanbaatar Ballerina
Barnum Bouncers

I think we had fun!


I would HIGHLY suggest heading out to see BARNUM 200! You can check it out Friday (7pm), Saturday (11am, 3pm, 7pm) or Sunday (2pm) at VanAndel Arena. Tickets are available on ticketmaster.com

Thanks again to Feld Entertainment who provided my family with tickets to Opening Night and tickets for the three winners of the circus giveaway! All opinions are my own.
