Last night we were able to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Out of this World one last time. Its unfortunate that the show that has been thrilling all ages for 146 years is suddenly coming to an end. The kids and I enjoyed tickets to see the show in exchange for making sure our readers knew the latest news. All opinions are our own though. Why You Should See Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus One Last Time? The simplest reason is the memories you would be making with your kids. Check out our experience from last night.
As for the past few years, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Out of this World show starts with an hour of time where you get to meet and greet some of the performers. I would suggest you grab a program before you head in. The performers all had Sharpies and were happy to not only sign your program but take multiple photos with you.
While the performers were on the concourse of the Eagle Bank Arena, down in the middle we got to learn about performers and their jobs like Alexander Lacey, the lion and tiger trainer, and Max.
Then the show started. We watched lions and tigers, clowns, trapeze artists, pigs, dogs and so much more as they told the story of two circuses combining out of this world to become the greatest show on Earth as well as the universe!
I’m beyond sad to think about the end coming. As a child my parents worked full time jobs but every year my mom would take off and we would skip school and go to the DC armory to see Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey®. I have vivid memories of walking in that building, watching such an amazing group of performers and even picking that one souvenir that I just had to have. This is your last change to make those memories with your kids. The last time you can see what has truly been the greatest show on Earth for 146 years, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Out of this World.
