I had the pleasure of going to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Presents… Barnums FUNundrum with my family and we were totally amused. I hadn’t been to the circus since I was a child and I was jumping out of my seat, screaming and clapping with each performance. This was the first time my children had ever been to the circus and they were blown away. The show was very upbeat with a live orchestra and good music to keep the audience at the edge of their seats throughout the show.
There were so many talented performers. Trapeze performers, contortionists, dirt bike riders, just to name a few and I can’t forget the animals. I loved the animals! Animals are so smart, the tigers and elephants doing their tricks and dancing was very entertaining. The performance started at seven with an intermission and was over at roughly nine thirty. The show came to Time Warner Cable Arena in Charlotte, NC on January 26 and ends on the 30th. I would definitely recommend everyone go and see this show, it’s truly the greatest show on earth!
We did get a nice bonus towards the end of the show. Baby Elephant Barack was escorted by his mom and trainer around the arena. Baby Barack was born in 2009 right around the Presidential Inauguration. I wonder if the president knows there’s a baby elephant named after him. Take a look at some of the highlights of the show that I managed to capture.
