Ringling Bros. Presents DRAGONS in Cincinnati March 13-17th – Details & Enter to Win Tickets!

Ringling Brothers Presents Dragons in Cincinnati

Have you ever been to the circus?  I, for one, have not.  I’m excited that this will change this month, and on a very special day – our daughter’s second birthday!  Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Dragons will be in Cincinnati starting Wednesday March 13th through the 17th.  You might want to know what the show is about first, right?

Ringling Bros Dragon

Did you know that 2013 is the year of the dragon?  In honor of this, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey is presenting DRAGONS, a once in a millennium event!  From the farthest reaches of the earth, circus performers have assembled just for Ringling Bros. Presents DRAGONS to showcase their astounding acts of bravery and astonishing athleticism.  Ringmaster Jonathan Lee Iverson will be presiding over this fantastic celebratory tournament of circus champions that brings together mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats.  DRAGONS is a never-before-seen blend of renowned spiritual and real life legends that can be found only at The Greatest Show On Earth!

Here’s a great video to watch to get you even more excited for the show!

Like I said earlier, DRAGONS will be at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati March 13th through the 17th! In total there will be 8 different performance times over the course of the five days.
