The “greatest show on earth” returns to Lexington in September with an electrifying lineup of circus entertainment for the whole family.
Tickets are on sale now for “Fully Charged” from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The show features breathtaking dare-devilry, amazing stunts and never-before-seen performances.
See Tabayara, the world’s most thrilling animal trainer, stand in a cage, eye to eye with 12 ferocious tigers. His ability to communicate with animals can lead four-ton Asian elephants in a symphony of dance.
The Human Fuse, Brian Miser, will rocket through the air from his self-made human crossbow. Don’t blink as he flashes across the sky in less than a second, and travels 80 feet at 65 miles per hour.
The Fearless Fernandez Brothers will dial up the thrills with daring feats of athleticism, and extreme jumps and twists inside the Twin Turbines of Steel.
Audiences crackle with excitement when they watch Guillermo perform a 360-degree flying forward somersault three stories in the air, a feat so difficult it has been attempted by only one other person in the 141-year history of Ringling Bros.
How many clowns does it take to change a light bulb? See the hilarious hoopla with the clowns from the world-famous Ringling Bros. clown-alley as they delight children of all ages with their wild antics.
