RINGLING BROTHERS: Truly the Greatest Show on Earth! | @RinglingBros @HondaCenter


Last week, we were invited to attend the Opening Night of Legends:  Ringling Brothers new show.  What a great family event!  There was something for everyone.  

First we were sure to get there early and check out the pre-show that allows the audience to come on stage and participate in fun games, dancing, shows and more!  This is free to all ticket holders so  be sure to come early.


The clowns were my favorite(I never thought I would ever say that after IT!).  They not only were extremely funny, they were amazing acrobats!


Now I tried a uni-cycle when I was a kid and it wasn't pretty... these artists make it look SO easy!


The star of the pre-show was one of the elephants coming out and painting a portrait of an audience member.  One lucky winner actually got to take the painting home!

The show was starting and there was so much to see!  I really can't explain all the acts because there were so many that I would've needed 5 cameras to capture them all but I will share with you my favorites of the night.


My son's favorite part was the Motorcycle Ball of Death!  Okay, that's what my son called it anyway.  He was amazed that they could fit at least 8 riders inside without crashing.



My daughter was torn between the beautiful acrobats with the fans on bikes and the elephants that she had met that morning.



Animals are my passion but horses have always been a part of my life. The equestrian skills shown that night make me yearn to ride again.



Lastly, my husband's favorite part of the show were the big cats.  He is a HUGE cat lover and to him, the bigger the cat, the more to love.  He would totally try this with our cats at home, if he could.

I hope that you get a chance to see this multi-talented, multi-faceted show.  While there are those that don't feel comfortable attending the circus' anymore, I hope that I can bring a little bit of the circus to them.  

Ringling Brothers will be at the Honda Center in Anaheim through this weekend.  Be sure to check them out before they move on.
