circus-in-dc

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is back in town and my family and I thoroughly enjoyed the new show, Built to Amaze! This new production by the Greatest Show on Earth will be in the DC area for five weeks. This construction-themed show has elephants, tamed tigers. trained poodles, miniature ponies and horses, amazing acrobats, a woman shot out of a cannon, tight rope walkers, and hilarious clowns. The show is packed with nearly three hours of amazements.

All circus tickets include the All-Access Preshow beginning an hour before show time — FREE to all ticket holders. The Preshow allows audience members to meet and take photos with performers, try on circus costumes, learn circus skills and have the chance to win a masterpiece painting by one of the Ringling Bros. artistic Asian elephants. Families can experience the circus right from the three rings! It is worth the ticket price.

Built to Amaze performs at two arenas in the Washington, D.C. area – the Verizon Center in the District from March 20 – 23and the Patriot Center in Fairfax, Va. from April 9 – 20. Built to Amaze will also perform at the Baltimore Arena in Baltimore, Md. from March 26 – April 6.
