The Greatest Little Show On Earth!

The Kelly Miller Circus came to our little town. I went down to the ticket booth early the morning of the show to pick up discount tickets. They were discounted from $15 to $10 plus I had coupons for free tickets for the 2 littles. I ended up buying the upgrade to VIP ringside seats{$2 per ticket}. So instead of sitting on bleachers for 2 hours we got patio chairs so close to the ring we could have touched the animals running around it!


The ringmaster started the show!


There were camels who twisted and turned and bowed...


and little ponies and dogs who jumped and posed.


During intermission the 3 girls rode an elephant...


and got their faces painted. Well, not Manga Dork.


It was fun watching and experiencing this through the kids. My FIL and MIL joined us.


The clowns made us giggle...


and the elephants took our breath away because they were so close.


We felt every flame from the fire eating crazy guys.


I didn't even show you the other clowns, tigers, jugglers, dancers, cowboys with lassos, acrobats, tumblers...


If they come to your town be sure to take time to go. It is the most fun I have had in a long time.

This looks like a lot of fun. Neither of my kids have been to a circus...we will definitely keep our eyes open for this one.

I haven't been to a circus in years! I remember the smells, sounds and fun though of taking our kids to one a very long time ago.
