Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus

Sat, Jun 19, 2010 (10:28 a.m.)

On Friday night at the Orleans Arena, a space occupied much of the year by a hockey rink and dim lighting was transformed into a classic three-ring-circus as Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey came into Las Vegas for the weekend. The show titled Barnum’s FUNundrum! included fireworks, midgets, elephants, baton twirlers, death-defying acrobats, punk clowns, stilt-walkers dressed as exotic birds, singers, dancers, contortionists and tigers, all in the first 15 minutes of the show.
