Making Memories with @RinglingBros at The Q Arena Win Tickets! #RinglingInsider

Feld Entertainment

I received something of value from Feld Entertainment as part of the Insider Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

I love the circus.  My fondest memories are of my parents taking me to Ringling Bros. and Barnum and Bailey for my birthday.  It never failed to arrive in town for my birthday.

This year Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Legends will be coming to C-town October 22 - 26, 2014 at the Quickens Loan Arena, an early birthday gift to me and for the kids.  And, a gift for one lucky winner!  Enter to win at the end! 

The kids and I actually went this past April to the performance in Youngstown so we know what we will be seeing but that won't mean we enjoy it any less. The kids were amazed at the pre-show activities and marveled at the amazing acrobats and zany clowns. We truly enjoyed ourselves.

One thing I love, even the years we don't go, is the parade of elephants down East 9th Street.

Seeing them in person is a really amazing event but if you miss the parade down main street (so to speak) I highly recommend taking advantage of the free to all ticket holders the All Access Pre-show!

At the All Access Pre-show learn juggling and balancing skills, meet the performers, get autographs, take photos, and enter to win a one-­of‐a‐kind Pachyderm Painting. The kids got pictures with some of the performers and we got to be ridiculously close to the action. It was worth going to and it is open to everyone with a ticket, an hour before the show.

Besides the clowns and the animals, there are many acts, performed by talented individuals that defy logic and some are just deadly.  Many of these acts kept us on the edges of our seats, gasping along with everyone else.

  • The Chinese National Acrobatic Troupe from Beijing impresses audiences with a number of diverse acts that include fast-paced hoop diving through astonishingly tall and impossibly narrow hoops, an elegant rolling ballet on bicycles where acrobats perform feats and build an incredible pyramid and breathtaking pole climbers executing flips and twists accompanied by traditional, dancing Chinese lions.
  • The Human Lotus Blossoms represent the largest assembly of hair-hanging artists appearing anywhere in the world today. An international array of beautiful “hairialists” from the U.S., Brazil, Bulgaria and Ukraine, they perform mesmerizing acrobatic choreography suspended only by the strands of their hair.  The act culminates in the human chandelier with all eight performers swinging simultaneously four stories above the arena floor by only the strength of their long tresses.
  • An elite super-group of high-flying trapeze artists from the U.S., Brazil, Venezuela and Mexico, The Solar Hawks present a never-before-seen double-wide flying trapeze act designed specifically for The Greatest Show On Earth. This dream team exhibits precision, stamina, strength and perfect form while attempting four consecutive triple somersaults with only seconds between each release.
  • The Riders of the Wind thunder into the arena on the backs of thoroughbred horses and
    are the protectors of the mythological Pegasus and Unicorn.  These speeding daredevil Cossack riders display their strength and amazing dexterity as they perform intricate maneuvers, including a remarkable five-man high pyramid, while galloping at more than 25 miles per hour in a 
    46-foot-diameter, specially-designed ring.
  • Under the baton of bandleader Wages Argott, the dynamic, nine-piece Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Band performs an original score of over 200 pieces of music arranged by award-winning Hollywood and Broadway composers.

  • From Paraguay, the fearless Torres Family shatters records and dares to achieve the impossible by putting eight family members, including one female rider, on speeding motorcycles inside the Globe of Steel. Once locked inside the 16 foot globe, they will orbit at an unprecedented 65 Miles per hour with only six inches to spare between each rider, avoiding collision by relying on their rigorous accuracy and confidence in each other.

My kids still talk about our day at the circus and pretend to be part of it.  Can't wait to go back!
