We sat in the bleachers and they are not forgiving on the bum. Next time, bringing a blanket or sitting in the arena seats.

It was ok, My Son loved it. Only thing I didn't like was the fact that there were no animals in the show.

not having to have been to a circus in a lot of years I was very dissapointed to say the least. Acts were good but no animals!! Call it a traveling side show. Acoustics were atrocious. Too loud and not able to be understood. Never again will...continued
