@ Congratulations to Becki!!! enjoy the show!


Do you remember your first time at the Circus?   My mom has a beautiful black and white photo of us with a clown when I was maybe 6 years old.  My parents used to take my brothers and me to the Circus at least once a year.  I remember the animals, the clowns, the trapeze artists, and of course I remember the cotton candy, the popcorn, and the candy as well.

I haven’t taken my kids to the Circus yet, but this is our year.  Meanwhile Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is on the road again, they will be visiting several cities in the United States presenting various shows including:

  • Fully Charged
  • Zing Zang Zum
  • Barnum 200
  • Bum A Ring

Please check the schedule right here to see which show is featured in which city.  And please visit or for ticket information in your city.

Today I have very good news if you live in or near Bakersfield, Ca because I have a giveaway.  Let me tell you a little bit about the show and then I’ll tell you what you need to do to participate for your chance to win:

Fully Charged celebrates ‘performance power’ that boosts circus-goers’ excitement. The amazing acts, which can only be seen at The Greatest Show On Earth®, include:

Tabayara, a dynamic animal trainer whose rare ability to communicate with animals allows him to ride rearing stallions at a fully-charged gallop and orchestrate majestic four-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance.

The strongman duo of Dmitry and Ruslan, who are as wide as they are tall. The brawny twosome give the word ‘manpower’ a whole new meaning as they lift large, cumbersome telephone poles, which weigh up to half a ton, and twirl them above their heads while acrobats balance atop.

The fearless Fernandez Brothers dial up the thrills as they perform daring feats of athleticism on the Twin Turbines of Steel, including extreme jumps and twists inside the moving wheels!

Clown Alley, charge up the audiences’ funny bones with hysterical silly antics and clownish comedy.

The action at Fully Charged begins an hour before show time at the All Access Pre-show Party Up Party – FREE to all ticket holders. Get to know the world’s greatest performers, meet some amazing animals in person, and work to become CircusFit all before the show starts!

Performance Schedule in Bakersfield is:
Thursday, August 25th, 2011     7:30pm
Friday, August 26th, 2011         7:30pm

My favorite part of the circus has always been seing the elephants, and going early to see them before the show starts! This year, though, my favorite part will be taking our daughter to see the circus for the first time! She’ll be four in a coupkle of weeks, and I know she is just going to be amazed by the sights and sounds of the circus!

I just love the circus and the animals and the people that make it an amazing show. This year I will be taking my 3 year olf daughter, so that will be an awesome experience for her. She loves elephants, tigers, monkeys. We’ll just have to see what the show brings this year.

When I was young the clowns were my favorite. They would blow up balloons and make things with them. So much fun.
