Nothing against Bridgestone but it took forever to get in the door. The ticket scanner kept shutting down so we felt like we were in Office Space with how long the line took once the doors were opened. Not to fear though, we made it in and made our way to the floor and immediately ran into this clown. He told me I could take his picture for $45... Both kids look pretty excited don't they? :)
For the National Anthem this beautiful elephant was marched in in patriotic gear. It was fun to hear the arena full of singing from the audience..not just the performers.
I have to say I was quite impressed with the transitions between acts. There is a reason this circus is called "The Greatest Show on Earth". The clowns were funny, the stunts were fantastic and the performers played to the crowd. If Ringling Bros. Barnum and Bailey come back to town I am sure we would go again! :)
