My Thoughts:

I will keep this short, as the photos will do the talking.  This evening, we attended the opening night show of DRAGONS!, put on by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey.  What an amazing show.  Usually it is hard to keep Savannah entertained throughout shows, but she was sitting on the edge of her seat the entire night in awe, as was my husband and I.  We loved the lion show, the motorcyclist on the high wire and the musical numbers by the ringmaster.  My husband loved the martial arts performance.  As for Savannah, it was hard to tell, as she clapped and smiled for each and every performance.  But, I did see her getting excited for the horses and the elephants.  I wished we could have arrived before the performance, as we could have met the cast and animals, but my husband was stuck in traffic on his way home from work.  Overall, we have an amazing family night.  And, this was Savannah's first (but, not last) circus, so it was great to see her reactions.  As soon as we got to the car, she fell asleep.  I bet she was dreaming about the circus.

Here are some of the photos I took of the show.  With Friday through Sunday performances left, and tickets still available, why not order tickets and surprise your children.  Or, why not treat yourself to a wonderful Mother's Day gift, the whole family will enjoy.  Either way, this show will have you amazed and cheering for more.

Disclosure:  I was sent tickets to the show in order to write up an honest review.  The views above are mine and mine alone.

  1. It was a spectacular show! I went to Hampton Colliseum with my boys (4 & 10) to see it. I'd never ever been before and it was worth it! The kids loved it and I did too!
