Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus….FUNUNDRUM- what my family thought of the show!

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus, FUNUNDRUM! We went last night- my husband and I took our 2 1/2 year old and our almost 8 month old baby to see the “Greatest Show on Earth”. Let me start by saying that in the past my son has told me that he is scared of clowns. For some reason he just does not like them. He was very excited to go to the circus….we traveled almost 2 hours to get there and we sit down in our seats and he turns to my husband and says “I want to go home. I don’t like clowns”. Then the show started and his eyes widenened. He watched in amazement, the entire show…saying over and over “How did they DO that”? and “Did YOU SEE that”? Half way through he turned to me and said, “Mommy, I not afraid of clowns anymore”! He loved every minute of the show. There were Acrobats and Rubber Band Women that make you wonder- “how is that humanly possible”. There were athletes that displayed just exactly what “super human strength” really is. The animals were breathtaking and entertaining. It was amazing to see one of the largest animals on earth so amazingly agile…performing with such precision and accuracy. The tigers were beautiful and it kept you on the edge of your seat as their trainer flirted with such danger. The mutual love and respect was evident in the relationship that seemed to come so naturally between them. Then there were the motorcycles and the 16 foot steal globe…this you would have to see to believe…..although I saw it, and I still am having trouble believing what I saw. This was one of our favorite parts of the show….Six motorcycles racing at speeds up to 65 miles an hour inside the globe. The balance and timing was unreal….crisscrossing and circling within the metal sphere. Jaw dropping. This show was colorful and filled with great energy that kept even my 7 1/2 month old baby still on my lap during the entire show! We highly recommend Barnum’s Funundrum….after all it is FUN for the whole family….creating memories your little ones will not soon forget! There is a reason that it is called “The Greatest Show on Earth”.
