They say that the Ringling Brother's and Barnum and Bailey Circus is the "Greatest Show on Earth." That is a lot to live up to, but I'm pleased to say that they didn't disappoint.
We were able to enjoy this performance at the Comcast Arena in Everett, WA. The atmosphere was lively right from the time we hit the door with the flags, decorations and banners covering the walls and merchandise tables lining the hall. If you decide to check out this show, "Fully Charged" in your hometown, be sure to go an hour early in order to take advantage of the pre-show activities. My children loved this time almost as much as the circus itself. I would recommend arriving at least a half an hour before the pre-show as the line to get into the arena was pretty long.

The show is two hours long with a 15 minute intermission. The action is packed enough that even my three year old was entertained and enchanted. I didn't even have to dip into the crayons and Polly Pockets that I typically carry in purse for entertainment.
My son and husband enjoyed the Death Defying Motorcycle Globe the best. The speed at

My girls were particularly fond of the animals. The dogs were a hit with all the kids and adults alike. One of the little pups was quite the showman. He was hamming it up for the audience.
For me, I have always been fascinated by the acrobats and these talented performers are the best I've ever seen. The clowns have a special place in my heart and the jugglers were great too. I anticipate that my children will be throwing balls around for the next week or so.
