We Went to the Circus!!

     I have shared with you all that we were going to attend the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus this week.  We went on Wednesday the opening night.  Since the location was downtown Phoenix and I work closer then I live to that area I decided to go pick up Jayden and go right there.  Unfortunately, John had to work a little late and then by the time he got home (lives closer to home) he was not able to drive all the way downtown for the show.  So my friend Chantel and her son Aidan attended with us. 

     I was excited to get there early because they have a pre-show.  We were able to walk down on the arena floor and see some fun activities like the dogs doing some tricks, the elephant painting, the girl on the silks, dancing with clowns, and much more.  It was very crowded in that area and hot.  I was sweating and Jayden insisted on being held up so he could see.  When all the pre-show fun ended we found out seats.  We were in row 13 at the 100 level so not too bad of seats.  We were able to see the whole floor.
     The show was called Dragons. Dragon tribes from the far reaches of the earth are brought together in a single performance, displaying their breathtaking skills in a circus tournament of champions. Each tribe must prove that they have virtues of Courage, Strength, Wisdom and Heart to arouse dragons which appear right before your very eyes! 
     Jayden was simply amazed with everything he saw.  I was trying to capture much of it on photos and videos, but my camera did not take many great pictures (I really need a nice new camera!!) and the video was draining my battery and it died soon after the intermission.  I am still gonna share some of the photos and videos that did turn out. 

     You can see a few more videos that I took like the motorcycle highwire, girls spinning by their hair, Horse tricks, and more.

     If your interested in attending the show it is still here in Phoenix, Arizona for a couple more days and you can even get $5 off with the coupon code.  If your not in Phoenix then check the tour schedule, they have many more cities to visit. 

I was provided tickets to the show free of charge.  All thoughts and opinions are my own and not influenced.   disclosure
