Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey at The Verizon Center Review! @RinglingBros

Thank You For Sharing!!

I am a Feld Family Ambassador, and in exchange for my time and efforts in attending shows and reporting my opinion within this blog, as well as keeping you advised of the latest discount offers, Feld Entertainment has provided me with complimentary tickets to Feld shows and opportunities to attend private Feld pre-Show events. Even though I receive these benefits, I always give an opinion that is 100% mine.


Ringling Bros. CircusMy family and I had the opportunity to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus XTreme about a week ago at The Verizon Center and what a show it was. This was our first time taking Liam to the circus and we hoped he would enjoy the music and fun. We had also never attended a Circus XTreme and it had been many years since we had seen the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus. In fact, we took 2 friends with us that had NEVER experienced a circus so they were super excited.


2The Verizon Center is a great location for the circus and we had a blast. I think that every seat there had a great view of the stage where the acts took place. Plus, they had things going on in different locations around the arena floor. There was fun music and routines that we really enjoyed. It is always so hard to pick a favorite but I think I have to say that the elephants were my favorite.


Ringling Bros. CircusWe also got to see some fun acrobats on the tightrope and that kept us on the edges of our seats. They did such fun tricks that were pretty awesome!


Ringling Bros. CircusThere were also other animals like camels and tigers in the show and also some adorable puppies and horses. The show was bursting with fun acts and animals. We loved the involvement of the clowns as well – it was so funny!


Ringling Bros. CircusIf you’re in the DC area, you’ll want to check out the details below as this fun circus will be at The Eagle Bank Arena giving you the opportunity to see this awesome show.
