Farewell Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey!

OpeningAct (1 of 1)

The “Greatest Show on Earth” made it’s final appearance in DC this weekend at the Verizon Center. The tour is permanently closing down in May after more than 140 years of entertaining the masses. We’ve taken our girls to the show the past few years and were very happy we got to take them one last time to see the “Out of this World” performance. But don’t worry, if you didn’t see it at the Verizon Center this weekend you also have a chance to see it at The Patriot Center in Fairfax Friday, April 7 through Sunday, April 16th.

At the pre-party we were lucky enough to meet some of the performers!

There was popcorn, hotdogs, cotton candy, cupcakes and lots cool circus swag like these elephant flags, clown hats, and light-up glasses. It was every kid’s dream!

There was face painting too! Clara decided to go with a butterfly and Mae choose a clown! After a fun pre-party the girls were super excited for the circus to start.

The opening act was just incredible! I was so surprised that they incorporated ice skating into the Out of this World performance. They also had clear balls hanging from the ceiling that were spinning around with dancers inside – so cool!

There was never a dull moment – always something amazing happening!

Alexander Lacey and his majestic big cats was another favorite act.

I’m always amazed by the motorcycle act and how they ride around the metal sphere at warp speeds in synchronization.

There were so many other great parts of the “Out of this World” show – the trapeze artists, the animal performances, the clowns, and the basketball superstars were all so entertaining! Most importantly, my girls had a very fun and memorable night at the circus. I hope they will remember this and how special it was to see the last Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey show.
