Yesterday my family and I went to West Palm Beach to see the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus and had a wonderful time. My children loved that before the show started they were able to play dress up and try on some of the costumes plus meet with some of the entertainers.
The cotton candy came with a wet wipe! LOL
I thought the show was a nice mix of modern acts and old school side show entertainment- fire breather, flaming batons, and a strongman that was AMAZING! He had a real Jeep filled with circus performers ride over his torso while he was just covered with a board. Crazy! Here he is with 8 women standing on a board on his chest.
And here he is lifting 7 women on a pole on his back!
He was going across “monkey bars” upsidedown by his feet!!!
I also really enjoyed the comedy act in between the regular acts. Instead of clowns entertaining they had a “nerd” and the band leader interacting with lots of physical comedy that really made the crowd laugh.
It would be hard to pick my favorite act in the show. I loved the dogs that did tricks but I also loved the acrobats and the motorcycle drivers that drove around a small metal cage. I think my daughters liked the elephants and the tiny ponies the best.
We all had a lot of fun. The show we saw was smaller than the larger circus that is coming to Miami next week so I am sure that one will be even better. Make sure to bring some extra money with you for popcorn, cotton candy, snow cones, and souvenirs. The popcorn and cotton candy came with keepsake hats and the snow cones came in a cute clown faced keepsake mug.

Official Press Release- Miami, Fla – November 2, 2011 – Don’t miss Fully Charged, the all-new surge of circus entertainment
Bros. and Barnum & Bailey where megawatts of thrills explode off of the
superhuman stunts and never-before-seen performances that energize Children Of All Ages, and will run January 6-16 at
the AmericanAirlines Arena.
The most electrifying edition ever of Ringling Bros.® celebrates ‘performance power’
excitement. The amazing acts, which can only be seen at The Greatest Show On Earth®, include Tabayara, a dynamic
animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to ride rearing stallions at a fully-charged
gallop and orchestrate majestic four-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance. When he stands inside a cage, eye to
eye with 12 ferocious tigers, Tabayara sees family where others see danger.
The fearless Fernandez Brothers dial up the thrills as they perform daring feats of athleticism on the Twin Turbines
of Steel, including extreme jumps and twists inside the moving wheels! Audiences will crackle with excitement as they
watch Guillermo perform a 360-degree, flying-forward somersault, three stories in the air, a feat so difficult it has only
been attempted by one other person in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros. The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, sets the
arena sky ablaze as he rockets through the air from his self-made human crossbow. Don’t blink as he flashes across the
sky in less than a second, and travels 110 feet at 65 miles per hour.
Ever wonder how many clowns it takes to change a light bulb? The hilarious hoopla continues to flow as the clowns from
