Review: We had the opportunity to attend opening night of the Dragon’s show by Ringling Brother and Barnum and Bailey this Wednesday night. My daughter, who is 6 had never been to a large circus before and was beyond excited to attend. We went to the pre-show that starts an hour before the show. I would suggest skipping this part if you have small children. It was not what I envisioned. There were some clowns leading the children in dance, which was fun, you could try on costumes, but it was very chaotic and hard for small children to move around the floor to see what was happening. There was also a bounce house but you had to pay to enter it. Once the event started my daughter was enthralled! It is definitively what you would call a “three-ring” circus. Every where you turned there was something happening, catching you eye and entertaining you. From Lions, Tigers, Dogs, Horses and Trapeze Artists. My daughter immensely enjoyed the show and said it was the “best night of her life”. She loved the animals and dancing. My husband and I enjoyed the clowns the most, they really brought laughter to the event and I wish they had been showcased a bit more. All in all this was a great family friendly event!
I am sure there are two sides to every story so I tried to keep an open mind. But, I did have a hard time with the animal acts. Before the show PETA was outside handing out pamphlets with disturbing information and it was hard for me to shake and truly enjoy the animals being showcased.
