We had the opportunity to attend the opening night of Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey at the Honda Center this week. Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey presents Zing Zang Zoom is a show that is not to be missed. It was the kiddos first trip to the Circus and boy were they excited! I had not been to the circus in ages(think decades!) and was just as excited as the kiddos. If I only had one word to describe our experience it would be unforgettable! It was an unbelievable night and the kids have yet to stop talking about it. From the moment we walked to our seats the kids were in awe. There is an all access pre-show that is available to the general public an hour before the show. The pre-show allows you to view some of Zing Zang Zoom's performers up close and on the arena floor. We were able to catch some of the pre -show and my kids almost came unglued! They were in love before the show started. If you can make sure to get to the show at least an hour before show time to be able to enjoy the amazing pre-show. Once the pre-show was over, we headed back to our seats and sat back to enjoy a magnificent show. This is definitely not the Circus that I watched as a child! It is magical, hip and the performers were out of this world. If you are a fan of aerialists and acrobats- this is the show for you. My kiddos were in absolute heaven! I think one of my favorite aspects of parenting is being able to see a new world through my children's eyes. You can imagine how I felt as I watched them experience the circus for the first time. I have never seen them as excited and amazed as I did last Wednesday night. They loved everything about the show and this sappy mom even shed a tear as she watched her two year old jump in delight as the beautiful elephants marched into the arena. They loved everything about the circus,from the yummie treats to the amazing tight rope walks. We made some wonderful memories! I can't rave enough about what an amazingly good time we had at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's Zing Zang Zoom. It is indeed the Greatest Show on Earth!!
