Right when you enter, enjoy an indoor midway of rides, games and animals, too. Then, head inside the big top to see the Arabian horses, tigers – and two elephants who do tricks by voice command. Plus, the energetic clown performance will have everyone laughing!

Along with all the laughter, you’ll be amazed by the breathtaking high-wire acts doing stunts. See the aerialists, flying trapeze – plus the gymnastics who have traveled all the way from China to perform.

Don’t forget to gobble down some popcorn and hot dogs while watching (and perhaps some cotton candy!).

  • Dear Metro Parent, Please stop promoting events/companies that our own government (USDA) has cited for animal cruelty, neglect and improper veterinary care. Let’s instead focus on animal-free events which teach our children that animals should be cherished and respected, not dominated and humiliated in order to amuse us for a few moments. Thank you for your consideration…

  • Why would anyone go to a circus, where elephants are broken & beaten to learn stupid, unnatural stunts? They stand in chains when not performing! So wrong! Animal abuse!

  • I would love to take my kids but can’t possibly take them to a circus that has been cited for animal cruelty. I don’t understand why the circus’ can’t continue their traditions sans the animals. We would love to go an enjoy just the rides, clowns and acts. I’m sad my children will never see a circus but I refuse to support or expose my children to that inhumanity. It’s time for us to demand a change from circuses!

  • I feel sad for our children of today. The above posts just illustrate the liberal mindset that is slowly eroding our once great culture. Too bad these people aren’t as concerned about the illegals flooding our border, or the terrorists that are, everyday, raping and beheading children. The circus is fun. The circus is meant to take our minds off the everyday problems society faces. Try not to overthink it. These animals are doing just fine without your bleeding hearts.

    • I must say that I agree. I love animals, but I cherish human life more than anything. Those talented animals are fine, let’s put more effort in trying to make America a great country once again, fight for human rights (especially children), and visit the circus for a fun family time.
