We saw dragons last night! {Circus Review}

First of all, we parked right across the street from the arena and it cost $10. With how cold it's been I'm all for spending an extra $5 for less of a walk. As media, my family and I were invited to attend an animal care clinic before the pre show. There was about 30-40 people in the arena at the time, so it was a nice intimate time to see some of the animals do their tricks up close and personal and ask their trainers questions. My son loved this part because he's an animal lover! :) My favorite was the dogs, because we're dog lovers in my house. They were so cute and their tricks were adorable. The trainer told us with just an hour a day we could teach our dogs the same tricks depending on the breed. I might make Makena a circus dog, watch out!

Then we were able to attend the pre show, which is open to any ticket holders an hour before the show. At the pre show you get to walk around the floor, meet the performers, try on fun costumes and more fun entertainment for the kiddos. If you haven't gone to the circus yet, be sure to arrive an hour early for the pre show! There is an AMAZING bounce house, but it's $5 to get in.

We made sure to grab some dinner and get to our seats, it was time for the show to start. And with a tagline of "The Greatest show on Earth", they had a lot to live up to. And they delivered! We loved it. I've been going to the Ringling Brothers Circus my whole life and every year is different and such a treat. They really out did themselves this year, I was thoroughly entertained. The show was 2.5 hrs long with intermission. We stayed the whole time, but a lot of our friends with younger kids left at intermission because they were sleepy.

There were acrobats, motorcycles on tight ropes, fire jumping, silly clowns, amazing elephants and DRAGONS!!! If you haven't bought your tickets, do so now! The kids will love it, and so will you!

I received complimentary tickets from Feld Entertainment for my family to attend this event. Any opinions expressed are mine and my families, but we're sure you'll agree.
