Oh man some of my best childhood memories were from going to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus as a child. I loved everything about it and my mom would take us every year! From the smell of the hay in the building, the death-defying acrobatic tight rope walkers and trapeeze swingers, the LOUD but absolutely incredible motorcyclists in the giant cage, actually getting to walk next to the famous clowns – it was pretty surreal as a kid. Even now as an adult I’m amazed by their bravery and talent during the circus. In fact I’ll never forget that I was so enthralled one year that my mom bought us one of those HUGE circus books with the big photos of all of the acts from the circus. I remember spending HOURS with that thing…..I might even still have it somewhere!

Ringling Bros. Fully Charged ringmaster, David Shipman introduces audiences to an international cast of elite performers that generate eye-popping thrills. Electrodes of excitement explode off the arena floor starting with the Lopez Family and their trifecta of extraordinary performances includes knuckle-biting knife throwing, outrageous high-wire stunts and synchronized mayhem inside the globe of steel!  Ringling Bros. also welcomes Mongolian strongman Mr. Power along with dazzling Lady Lightening, award winning aerial gymnast Sergey Novikov of the Ukraine and the Vavilov Troupe, a six-man acrobatic troupe from Russia. It wouldn’t be The Greatest Show On Earth without showcasing epic Asian elephants, commanding camels, handsome hoof stock and a powerhouse of pups. Ringling Bros. is excited to announce the return of Anton, the eccentric comedian and in Fully Charged, Gold Edition, an unsuspecting energy-thief who attempts to disrupt the flow of circus power using his own mischievous antics. From fire juggling, drum playing, tap dancing to trampoline tumbling, will this spotlight-stealer rewire his ways and repower the circus?
