Tonight is opening night for Barnum 200 – part of the Greatest Show on Earth as featured by the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. Opening first in Dallas at the American Airlines Center from July 27th through August 7th and in Fort Worth at the Fort Worth Convention Center from August 10th through August 14th.
Yesterday, Kathy Beazley shared a photo of the elephants celebrating at AT&T plaza at a special 200th birthday bash.
Barnum 200 celebrates the 200th birthday with animals, motorcycle troupes, high wire acts, clowns and much more activities to WOW the crowds. Johnathan Lee Iverson will be the ringleader tonight. An outstanding vocalist, he started his career at age 11 in the World Famous Boys Choir of Harlem. The high wire act will include the Sky-High Ice gliders also known at the Makarov Troupe from Russia. The troupe is led by creator and father, Sergey Makarov, and includes his two tremendously talented daughters Karina and Elina, and their high-wire walking husbands Sergey and Mikhail. The acrobats for the circus will be Barnum Bouncers also known as Puyang Troupe from the Henan Province in China. The city of Puyang is known as the land of the acrobats and the world’s best acrobat performers come from this city. The troupe combines six gargantuan sized trampolines with extreme flips and jumps to create a dazzling athletic aerial display for Children Of All Ages. There are more acts that you can follow and of course who can forget the clowns from clown alley. Sandor Eke from Hugnary is the Boss clown and he heads a troupe of hilarious characters that will entertain the crowds.
