Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus Holds Its Final Performances
It’s finally the end of an era. Generations showed up at this iconic circus to watch classic animal acts, aerial stunts and cycle routines. For the past several years now, the Ringling Bros has been in the hot seat facing legal issues from the animal rights group. It prompted the circus to end its elephant routines and the move had a great impact on tickets sales. Families, especially children came to the circus for the elephants and other animals’ centric routines. This combined with the operating costs and short attention span of the youngsters who no longer can sit and watch an hour-long show led to its eventual shutdown.
Still the announcement has come as a big blow for the traditionalists, who are now rushing to buy Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus Manchester tickets to catch the final shows. Here’s what the new generation will miss with the circus folding its tents for good.
Ringling Bros has been a staple of entertainment in the US. Death-defying acrobats, exotic animals performing spectacular stunts and flashy costumes, all made it a popular event. Ringling kept up with the latest trends and included modern day circus acts into its shows. Clowns, jugglers, cycle routines, wheel of death, human cannonball and aerial stunts remained the highlight of the show.
According to the founders, Ringling’s biggest competitor was time itself. Latest technology, gadgets, movies and video games took the people away from the traditional forms of entertainment. The end of the circus has surely left many with a sense of loss, but people will always remember it as the “Greatest Show on Earth”.
