There are some things about childhood that you don’t forget–learning how to ride a bike, maybe playing a particular game, and attending certain events. The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus at Madison Square Garden, NYC circa the late 70’s is one of those events for me. My family went with our good friends, rode the subway and sat in box seats for the Greatest Show On Earth. The lights, the music, the stunts–pure magic!
Fast forward 30 (seriously, 30, I know, doesn’t seem possible, I know) years and The Greatest Show on Earth is bigger and better than ever, and quite possibly coming to a city near you. Visit www.ringling.com to enter your zip code & find a show near you, learn about their Baby’s First Circus
program, and really, anything you ever wanted to know about the circus. If your child is an animal lover, there are all kinds of photos and facts about the animals in the Ringling Circus Family. MAM is loving the slides of the trainers taking care of the animals
