We went to the circus last night!

Remember this post where I talked about the circus discounts? Well my mom, dad, sister and I took Sara Rose to the circus last night. It was AWESOME! We had such a great time.

I am part of the Feld Family Activator program as a mom influencer (sounds fancy, right?) and was able to get to meet some of the performers before the show and then we got to go to the pre-show and THEN we were all able to go and watch the circus. The show was amazing, the staff was amazing, it was amazing to get to meet some of the MomCentral team. I can't even tell you how great it was. Here are a couple pics of Sara with some of the cast members (she would not pose for a pic, but would stand near them).

We took Sara to go and see a circus a year or so ago and it did not even compare to this. The performances were absolutely breath-taking, from the animals, to the acrobats, to the clowns, to the motorcycle riding high-wire act.

From their facebook page:
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® proudly presents Over The Top, an all-new live entertainment extravaganza featuring the ultimate tug of war between Ringmaster Chuck Wagner and clown eccentric Tom Dougherty over a magical top hat that controls the circus. When the Ringmaster dons the hat he conjures stupendous spectacles for his circus like the stunt riding Royal Cossack Cavalry while the clown uses the hat to summon silly and whimsical acts for his circus such as a cavalry of goats riding on ponies in a Barnyard Bonanza. They continue to top one another until the Ringmaster and clown realize that the magic of the circus is not in the hat but in the hearts of everyone. The show culminates in an amazing display of gigantic glowing rainforest flowers surrounding Chinese acrobats swinging on vines and propelling through the air. Over the Top is two circuses in one providing excitement for the whole family.

Audiences will see nearly 100 animals including flying dogs, Asian Elephants that skip, hop, and groove, miniature horses, llamas, pigs, and even a performing porcupine. In a daring feat, the courageous Daniel Raffo stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers. Circus celebrities help rev-up the motorcycle madness featuring one cycle on a high wire and seven speeding riders in a Globe of Steel. Extraordinary aerial acts fill the arena sky with a rare double-decker trapeze and the Bombastic Bouncers who combine gigantic inner tubes and awe-inspiring acrobatics in a high-energy performance never before seen in America. And with the audience's participation, this circus really goes Over The Top!
