My three youngest kids and I went to the see the circus on Sunday. It was the first time we’ve been to the circus. We loved it and were very entertained. We can’t wait until Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey come back to Portland. Sunday was the last day for the Built To Amaze tour in Portland. I think their next stop is Seattle.
Ringling Bros. Built To Amaze! event was about two hours long. If you have very little ones, don’t worry. There is an intermission so you can stretch your legs, take a bathroom break, and get some snacks. BTW, you’ll want to get there early because there is a free pre-show before the main event starts. Best of all, you can get really close to the activities and even mingle.
Built To Amaze features exciting acts like basketball players on unicycles (King Charles Troupe), high-flying trapeze, amazing archery demonstrations by Crossbow Casanova, daredevil motorcycle stunts, and funny acts that will make kids laugh like crazy.
The Ringling Bros. circus tour also featured acts with elephants (last time in Portland), horses, and puppies (they were very cute).
