The Circus is coming to Tampa January 6-10, 2016

For the 12th consecutive year the #TampaTrio will be heading to the GREATEST SHOW ON EARTH! Of course I am referring to The Ringling Bros Circus.

The Legends Tour will be in Tampa January 6-10, 2016.

Our family LOVES the circus. Here is James and Ronin at the 2011 show.

And the girls at the 2008 show. They were so little!!

The circus ALWAYS has come to Tampa right around Haley's birthday and this year will be no different. She'll be turning 12 on January 5, 2016 and we're heading to the show on Saturday January 9.


We all have our favorite parts of the circus but all 5 of us LOVE the GLOBE of STEEL!

This year Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson guides Paulo the Legend Seeker on a quest to discover real, living legends from around the world. Audiences will experience Alexander Lacey and his enduring bond with his lions, majestic leopard and tigers during one of the most captivating acts. The Solar Hawks, a dream team of acrobats, come together to amaze by attempting four consecutive triple somersaults on a one-of-a-kind double-wide trapeze specifically designed for The Greatest Show On Earth®.  The Riders of the Wind, Cossack trick-riders will thrill as they thunder into the arena on the backs of thoroughbred horses stealing your breath with their daring stunts. Experience and learn about the special relationship between trainers and treasured Ringling Bros.® Asian Elephants as each trainer shows off individual elephant’s natural skills and abilities.

Free to all ticketholders, the All Access Pre-show starts an hour before the show. Come down to the arena floor and meet the performers of The Greatest Show On Earth, get autographs, take photos and enter to win a one-of-a-kind pachyderm painting. 

My trio LOVE the All Access Pre-show. Here is Ronin in 2008 (he's 2 and oh so cute!!) at one of the Pre-show activities!

  • I love watching all the stunts.
  • My favorite part of the circus is watching my kids be kids and my husband act silly with red noses and crazy hats. My teenager suddenly loves me again and I'm No longer the mean mom when we are at the circus. My kids get to see a different side of their dad. It's always a good time.
  • We haven't been to the circus yet but this would be a great time to start!
  • I have never been to the circus and neither has my daughter. I would love to take her!
