My family and I had the opportunity to attend Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus LEGACY show at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. Derek, 5 yrs old, had been to the circus when he was 2 1/2 and for Hayley, 3 yrs. old, this was her first circus. I was a bit nervous about Hayley since she doesn’t sit for long periods of time as easily as Derek does.
Derek kept saying he was scared of when the lions and tigers would come out…until they came out!! Then Derek was a captive audience. He was so amazed my the trainer and how he even kissed the lions.
Hayley is currently obsessed with My Little Pony so when the woman on the unicorn came out she started yelling “Princess Celestia” it was so cute and she talked about seeing Princess Celestia all night
We had to leave at intermission because the show started at 7pm and both Hayley and Derek were tired. When we got home from the show, I tucked Derek into bed and he said “Thank you for taking me to the circus, I just loved it so much” OK….I think that is all we needed to know, we will be going back next year for sure!
