The Circus has come to town and is only here in San Diego until Sunday, July 17th so hurry up, don’t delay, get your tickets and make your way to see The Greatest Show on Earth, FULLY CHARGED, presented by none other than The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey!
The morning of the circus’ Opening Night, Pinky, Cousin Aari and I were able to see the stars of the show, the animals of course, up close and personal!
My personal favorite…you don’t get this close to wild zebras everyday, not even at the San Diego Zoo!
These aren’t just horses, they are STALLIONS! Beautiful and skillful!
…and who could resist the mini ponies…not these little ones!
These are actual elephant teeth! Probably as big as your face!
We even got to watch one of the elephants take a bath! Meet Asia, the Asian Elephant she was such a good girl!
The only animals we didn’t get to see close up were the 12 talented tigers! We saw them from afar and that was enough…but we did see them in the show!
YOU too can have a chance to go behind the scenes when you purchase your tickets and arrive 90 minutes before the show. The Animal Open House is FREE to all ticket holders! There will be knowledgeable experts available to answer your most pressing questions about the Elephant Conservation, how the animals are transported and cared for, how they are trained, etc.
Did you know that elephants eat up to 150-200 pounds of food a day? Or that they travel by train? I didn’t either! Go buy your tickets and find out even more! This is an experience you don’t want to miss. Click here for more details about the show and where to find tickets.
