We hope everyone is staying safe and warm in their homes today! Last night, before the storm arrived, we attended opening night for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents LEGENDS. It’s been some time since I’ve been to the circus and I think my husband and I had as much fun as our boys did.
We arrived as soon as the show started and my boys immediately started bouncing up and down to the music. The colors and lighting make for some gorgeous images. All of the acts were extremely entertaining. While I thought the animals would be the favorites for our sons, they loved everything else almost as much!
For our oldest, who has a speech delay, this was the highlight of the night. I have never heard him talk so much. He was especially smitten with the lion named Goldie who made a show of laying down and stretching out instead of “going home” as she was instructed. They are gorgeous animals.
Following this were various acrobatic acts. Men climbed these flexible poles as effortlessly as walking. At one point, I was too awed to take a picture of two men climbing completely parallel to the poles using just their ARMS. Their bodies were absolutely straight and parallel to the poles. Amazing!
They brought out clowns, horses (including a unicorn and Pegasus!), women hanging from THEIR HAIR, and finally the Ringling Bros. elephants. This was all before intermission!
The circus is only in town until the 16th. Shows today have been cancelled but word so far is that the tickets will be honored for the remaining shows. Exchanges can be made at the box office. Make sure to check out the Wells Fargo Center Facebook page or Twitter account for announcements.
