What a great time we had this weekend! Sunday afternoon my family and I had the pleasure of experiencing The Greatest Show on Earth! The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at Atlanta ’s Philips Arena.
The show offered a wide variety of acts appropriate for all ages. My 9 month old was captivated by the bright lights and colors and my 5 year old enjoyed the animals and acrobatics. At various times, throughout the show, they sang a catchy tune telling the kids not to try the things they saw at the circus at home. Now when my son – who has proclaimed himself a “circus boy” – jumps off the top of the couch he includes this disclaimer:
“Mommy, don’t try this at home”. 🙂
This was our first visit to the Ringling Bros Circus and we truly enjoyed it. The show was longer than others we have seen and incorporated an intermission. The intermission provided a much needed break between the acts. My baby boy slept through the second half so it may have been a bit longer than needed for an infant, though. I would definitely recommend this if you are looking for a fun family outing.
The Circus is in Atlanta through February 21st. Do not miss it!
