The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus came to town last week, and it was so good, my son literally fell off his seat! Seriously, my seven-year-old was completely captivated by the show. When you go to an event and your kid is watching so intently that he falls off his seat, you know it's a WIN!
It's been a few years since we've been to the circus. The last time we went, my 5 year old was only a little baby. This time around was even better because both of my kids were old enough to enjoy it. My 5-year-old loved seeing the tigers and a basketball game where the players were on uni-cycles the entire time! My seven year old was blown away by the acrobatics and gymnastics.
I loved that there was something for everyone. If animals or clowns aren't your thing, there are so many other performers at the circus to get excited about. There was a girl who flew from a cannon, acrobats inside giant hamster wheels and a very cool trampoline routine too. The music, the colors, the costumes and the set was all fun and cheerful.
We had a fantastic night! Did you see the Philadelphia show too?
