A Kid’s Perspective on Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Legends
By Alyssa Green
My family and I were fortunate enough to get tickets to this weekend’s Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus performance Legends. I was super excited…until I realized that I had a conflict. I was supposed to be somewhere else during the show. Darn! Well, my family went without me and instead of me writing up a review, I decided to have my 11-year-old son write it. Brilliant right? If you want to know the truth about something, just ask a kid. So, here’s his truthful review. Enjoy.
“Who doesn’t love the circus? I surely do! The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus brought us Legends and entertained thousands. It had many performances, such as the Globe of steel (dirt bikers riding in a steel globe), lions and tigers doing tricks, dogs jumping through hoops, goats jumping over llamas, dogs jumping over llamas, trapeze performances, several dance performances, and many more. I just can’t remember them. My most favorite event was when one of the dancers jumped 10 feet high and jumped through the hoop. I thought it was amazing how he could do that. It was my first circus and I hope to see more in the future.” – Zachary, age 11
