Circus Time

ADVERTISEMENT

This weekend The Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus is in town. Amy and I are taking our youngest son Chipper and his "date" out to eat and then to the "Greatest Show on Earth"

I have such fond memories of going to Freedom Hall in my hometown of Louisville and seeing the spectacle that has always been the Three Rings of the biggest circus in the world.

UTC Mackenzie arena is much smaller than Freedom Hall or other venues within 2 hours of us so I have been a little disapointed in the "size" of the circus performances I have seen in recent years. Of course it is so unfair to compare the wide-eyed affection of a young boy for the circus than an almost 46 year old father of three. Things just appear smaller. I know because of the venue size it can't be as huge as I remember and has to be scaled back.

Now don't get me wrong! I am looking forward to going and the circus performers won't disapoint-they are phenomenal. I especially love watching all of the kids pointing, staring and shocked at what they are seeing. It is great!

I don't remember the vendors irritating me at all while a child either. No a days I look at them and instead of thinking "That rainbow snowcone in the souvenier cup looks delicious-Dad can I have one?" I now think "Wow-they have maybe $1.50 in the whole product and they think I am going to spend $10.00?"

But.......that's circus life and as PT Barnum is famous for saying....."Ther's a sucker born every minute!"

Bring on the Big Top! (I've always said I would be a great RingMaster!)
