Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Comes to SoCal

Built to Amaze promoThe circus is coming to town. I have never been  to the circus as a youth. The only time I went to a circus performance was Cirque de Soleil as an adult. I’m guessing it’s a bit different than how others imagine a circus to be.

Hubby and I will be taking the kids to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus in a few weeks. (Disclosure: Sponsored post.) I’m not sure how Big B will take to it. I have no doubt that he’ll love the animals. As for the act and performances, I think we’ll be doing a lot of explaining as to what’s going on…you know, just in case he gets any idea to duplicate it at home.
