So, it was off to the circus for C.W, and I on Sat!
We made the drive to Macon where
Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey
was waiting for us at the Centreplex.
I bought our tix on line so we didn't have to stand in line,
but I had no idea where our seats were.
They show you a chart, but it is difficult to figure out.
So, I just clicked on "best available" in the price range
I was interested in and bought them.
Wonder of wonders...they were great seats...
close to the action!
It was a good show and we had fun.
I mostly enjoyed watching C. W.'s reactions.
He laughed at the clown's antics and marveled at
the daredevils feats.
He was impressed with the animal's tricks
and he thought the 20 minute intermission was way too long!
Here we are waiting for the show to begin!
If you got there early enough, they invited you back stage
to see the animals up close.
This isn't a very good shot, but you can see (barely!)
Sophie, the elephant, in the background.
Our seats were just a few rows behind this sign...
first level above the floor.
I was impressed and grateful that the ringmaster sang the
Star Spangled Banner at the very beginning.
The tight wire troupe did a great job.
The camels and horses (and there were dogs, too!)
did their tricks...
as did the elephants!
The last performance was the motorcycle riders
taking spins in this...
There were other acts as well...which made for about
a 2 hour performance. I wouldn't say it was
"the greatest show on earth",
but it was an adventure and we did it together!
That's the stuff memories are made of! :-)
