Circus Swoops Into Rupp Arena Sept. 6-9

Children of all ages are invited to Rupp Arena to witness breathtaking stunts, feats of dare-devilry, amazing animals and more with “Fully Charged” from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

The Ringling Bros. world-famous clowns will delight children with their hilarious hoopla, but Tabaraya the animal trainer will have spectators on the edge of their seats as he stands eye-to-eye with 12 ferocious tigers.

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, traveling 80 feet at 65 miles per hour.

The Fearless Fernandez Brothers dial up the thrills with daring feats of athleticism and extreme jumps and twists inside the Twin Turbines of Steel.

Daring Guillermo performs 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.

Performances at Rupp Arena are scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 6 and Friday, Sept. 7 at 7 p.m.; Saturday, Sept. 8 at 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.; and Sunday, Sept. 9 at 1 and 5 p.m.
