Our Pre-Show Fun at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus #RinglingBros

Recently we were invited to see the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey: Legends show. While that alone was an exciting offer, they also invited us to visit Backstage with Ringling Bros. Circus Elephants and then attend the All Access Pre-Show.

Note: I was invited as media to this event and received tickets for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received. Any personal views expressed are always 100% my own.

During the all access pre-show, we had a chance to feel what it's like being part of The Greatest Show On Earth! And it was amazing!

As if that wasn't enough, after our pre-show we also had a mini meet and greet with ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. My son was so awestruck!

For the pre-show we received tickets that allowed us down to the show floor. Once there we saw and meet some of the circus performers and tried out a few circus activities. Let me tell you it's amazing to be on the arena floor and my son was excited to join in everything!

He first visited the tattoo station.

Then he met a member of the Torres Family who helped him sit on one of the motorcycles used in their performance.

Next was playing a game of catch with a few of the clowns. I was amused they allowed him to throw the ball and they actually caught it.

We then headed over the wardrobe area to play dress up. My son pick one of the dressier outfits. Even though it was to big for him he wore it with style!

We headed over to one of the performance rings. There my son joined one of the clowns in a jump rope performance. I was so amazed that clown was able to hold my son and actually jump rope. My son LOVED being part of it!

Then it was time dance! Once again my son found himself in the ring having fun. He joined others kids and followed a dancing routine with a few of the performers.

After that, we sat and enjoyed other mini show performances including the rolling skating duo, the tricycle trio and the painting pachyderm who's artwork was later raffled off to a family at the pre-show.

By the end of it all we were beyond excited to see the actual show. we said out goodbyes to the performers and quickly found out seats. As we sat in our seats my son was so happy he met the performers. I'm very sure this pre-show has given him memories he'll never forget.
