The Greatest Show on Earth- Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents DRAGONS- Review

As soon as I heard about Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents DRAGONS  at Bankers Life Fieldhouse I was so excited to surprise the kids with the show! Especially my son, who loves anything and everything dragons.

We joined a full house of people ready for the circus, it was amazing just how many people came out to see the show. I think having a full house makes the show experience even better, you get to "oo" and "ah" with each other and it just makes the show have a great energy.

This show is filled with acts, as you learn the skills you need with Strength, Courage, Wisdom, and Heart. I loved how the dragon theme was interwoven throughout the performances. It is a good balance of animal acts, which are always amazing, and showcasing the talents of people from their ability to move, flip, and drive.

When you hear "The Greatest Show on Earth!" you expect to see animals trained to perform, but I think the act featuring domestic animals (like cats and dogs) surprised me the most! I was not expecting that at all, and it was such a hit! I think it was a favorite for my children, and I could hear the laughs and cheers from the audience.

The show didn't go off completely without a hitch, but I think that just showed how real it was. The people performing are doing amazing (and dangerous!) things, and I think it helped show just how spectacular it is.

The greatest part of the greatest show is always watching it through the eyes of kids. Mine were amazed by the animals, dazzled by the acrobats in "bubbles", and would not stop talking about the motorcycles well after the show!

Judging by the smiling faces I saw while leaving the show, it was a hit for audiences young and old :)
