Events: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

By Desiré Bennett · March 8th, 2011 · CityBeat Recommends

All aboard the amazing circus train! Year after year the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus has dazzled children and adults alike, and this year's no exception. “The Greatest Show on Earth” has everything from high-wire artists performing over 40 feet in the air to death-defying motorcyclists rip-roaring around at speeds up to 65 mph while in a 16-foot steel sphere (known as the Spherical Miracle).

This year's theme, “Barnum 200: Barnum's FUNundrum,” celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of P.T. Barnum. So head to U.S. Bank Arena (100 Broadway, Downtown) and get ready to have a funtastic time. What could be cooler than watching three full-sized contortionists twist and fit their bodies into a see-through cube the size of a milk crate? Through March 20.
