10/17/13: Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Dragons in Boston

We had been going to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for many years and last night we saw Dragons at the TD Garden.  I love that every show is so different and you always see something you have never seen before.  We especially like the All-Access Pre-Show that is free for all ticket holders and is held one hour before the show as you can get up close and personal with performers from the show.
 The show is here until the 20th so you still have time to buy tickets.  One thing we saw in this show was 8 motorcycles in the globe.  Evan was lucky enough to get on one of the motorcycles before the show.

And of course one of our favorite parts is getting to see an elephant up close.  He is always last to come out at the pre-show and always near the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey sign so make sure to get to that ring to be up front to see him.  This elephant was quite talented as he could play basketball, maybe he could join the Celtics.  

Plus he was multi-talented and could paint.

The performers even gave some love to the Boston Red Sox!

This year for the first time they also had a bounce house that kids could go in.  The price was $5 for unlimited time in there for the hour of the pre-show.

 This show has fabulous performers in it.
The horse riders were amazing. 
 We enjoyed this motorcycle up on the high wire.  It was amazing the tricks they did on it and spinning around the wire.
 One of our favorite acts is the Tigers.  It is amazing seeing them jump.
 This year they had a lion that was awesome.  
He even got up on his hind legs.  He was so cool 
 Look at how massive he is.  So cute on the disco ball.
 We really enjoyed the performance from the Shaolin Kung Fu Warriors.
I can't believe he jumped through this with a mask covering his face.  It was swords and the whole thing was lit on fire.
 Love the flying trapeze.
 Oh my gosh, how adorable are these dogs???
 Amazing tricks!
My kids love the elephants.  I do too, they are so majestic and awesome. 
So awesome! 
 Love this guy!
These are the motorcycles I talked about, can you believe there are 8 motorcycles in there? 
 Of course you can't have a show called Dragons without a Dragon!

 The kids loved this!
 Great job to all the performers!
Kudos to the Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson
 It is an amazing show, I highly suggest going to check it out.
