Now Playing Under the Big Top

Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls of all ages, now playing under the Big Top, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents LEGENDS. Last week I was able to carry on a tradition that started back in my childhood and has been carried on to my children’s youth and now to my grandchildren as we made our annual trip to see the circus when it came to town. The magic was still alive with its preshow interactive opportunities for families to all the thrills that go along with the greatest show on earth. Behold the living legends! Children of All Ages will believe in the unbelievable with the all-new circus spectacular, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents LEGENDS as it continues to play at the Cow Palace here in San Francisco through September 1 before continuing its tour throughout the United States.
