Fun at the Ringling Circus Built to Amaze

Take a peek at our photos from the Ringing Brothers Built to Amaze Circus show on it’s stop in Philadelphia. What a night! We loved it and the kids were especially floored by the excitement. If you’ve never taken the kids to the circus, add this family fun activity to your must do list. Totally thrilling for the kids and even us Parents really enjoyed ourselves and were wowed by the acrobatics and elephants.

Tip: Arrive up to 1 hour early and enjoy a pre-show with the kids too. We had the chance to get on the circus floor, get photos with clowns, and watch an elephant paint a picture. Really!

We’re talking SERIOUS elephant acts – dancing elephants, elephant handstands and more!

Dueling elephants too!  Truly they had it everything from Trapeze Artists, Acrobatics from the ceiling, and even the human cannonball!

We ate dinner at the Wells Fargo Center – circus food galore. Expensive but yummy. Hot Dogs, cotton candy, and even these pre-made Smores sold on a stick that vendors  were pushing. The smore’s were OUTSTANDING and indeed DELICOUS! We liked them so much we bought another!

The cotton candy was really expensive – $14! Sounds almost criminal but it was an enormous bag and came free with this circus hat.

The kids had fun “clowning around” for a photo acting silly for a wild photo with their clown too. Good times!

Note: We received free tickets to attend the circus to facilitate our features. As always, all thoughts and opinions are our own.
