This weekend in Savannah: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ® Presents Built To Amaze!℠

Friday, January 23rd, 2015

Circus Savannah tickets giveaway

 

Athletes on unicycles shooting baskets. Motorcycle stunts on the high-wire.  The spinning wheel of steel. Jump-roping doggies. Aerial acts. And audience volunteers who always manage to get big laughs for their spontaneous performances.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey ® Presents Built To Amaze!℠ presented by McDonald’s and Metro PCS is at Savannah Civic Center this weekend with five shows remaining. We checked it out and loved seeing our kids laugh so hard at the antics of clown Davis Vassallo, the King Charles Troupe on unicycles and so many more.

Here’s when you can catch the fun:
