(Victor Valley)– The summer season brings lots of fun-filled activities to families and adults all over the nation with people traveling far and wide to their destinations. Whether fairs, concerts, or any stay-cation of your choice, why not enjoy the circus as well? Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® will be heading to the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario from July 19 – July 23, then to the Honda Center in Anaheim from July 26 – August 4 with their all-new circus spectacular Built to Amaze!
Built to Amaze! will dazzle audiences with heart-pounding and thrilling performances highlighted by several unique acts this year including: Comedic Animal Presenting Duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia and their remarkably trained poodles, ferrets, rabbits, snakes, and more; The Trampoline Tower Tumblers – aerial athletes from the Ukraine will launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower; King Charles Troupe from New York City – 10 whirling unicyclists will compete in a spirited and comedic basketball game. In addition, high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts, the youngest human cannonball, hand-balancing duos, clown acts, and four-legged star performers will take the stage to continue to wow audiences.
Arrive early for several exciting interactive elements before the show starts. All ticket holders are invited to tour the Animal Open House 90 minutes before the show starts to get up-close with the amazing animals. One hour before show time, families can step onto the arena floor to meet the circus performers and animals at the interactive All Access Pre-Show, also free to all ticket holders.
Prices range from $20-$26, $42 for VIP, $70 for Front Row, and $100 for Circus Celebrity.
