The greatest show on earth is a night to remember. As a kid, I remember like it was yesterday. We walked into the Big Top and the smells and sounds of the circus was over whelming. I remember the clowns in the small red car as they piled out to the middle ring. I remember all the animals that were trained for show in the three rings in the center of the tent. Imagine then my excitement when I got to take my family to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Show.
If you make it to the Tampa bay Times Form, you will see the Built to Amaze presentation of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & bailey. If you get to the form early, you get to walk though and see some of the animals before they enter the form for the show. Once the show begins, you get see circus performers from all over the world give you the performance of a life time. My children were in aw as they sat in our laps.

My personal favorite, are the clowns. They bring the show together with the little skits they do between main events. My wife loves the Double Dare with the four dare devils who showed amazing athleticism as the huge rings orbited around its axes and they climbed around jumping from the inside to out. It looks like a lot of fun, but I don’t believe I would be able to do it without taking a dive to the airbags below.
My Children loved the animals. My son loved to watch the Asian elephants. As soon as they came out to center stage, he was on the edge of his seat. My daughter is a horse lover. Watching the horses and there riders made her night. She almost seem to vibrate with excitement as she pointed out the different horses.
Other Animals you may find entertaining are the Tigers, the Puppies, and much more. The shows are amazing and I would recommend you taking the whole family. There is something for all ages and all ages will enjoy a night of excitement. Check out Ringling.com to find out when the show is coming to town for you.
