Thinking of taking my 2 dd's to the Ringling Bros Circus. I don't know how we have never gone. My dad used to take us all the time. Is it still a awesome show????

Not as many animals, that does not sound good!

I took dd a couple of years ago.  It's not as good as when I was a child.  (15 years ago) 

There were fewer animals.  safety reasons and PETA I'm sure.  eye rolling

Never been to it. They don't come to my town. But this made me think of the movie water for elephants.

 I find circus high wire acts too terrifying to watch. I'm more of a zoo/sea worldtype person. cuts down on panic attacks.

I went this year in Atlanta it was amazing def take them they will love it watch out for the toy vendors when you walk in though have you pay 20 for a cheap light saber get them some glow sticks before you go and put them in your purse

 Me too

I don't agree whit PETA though, but there's nothing fun in seeing a circus animal, it makes me so sad

We refuse to do circuses that have animals.. :/ Call me a super PETA animal lover.. but there's nothing fun or cool about the way the animals are treated in most cases.

I totally agree !

It IS!!!  My kids both loved it.

And, BTW -- circuses are MUCH better regulated than they used to be (especially a huge, well-known one like Barnum & Bailey -- which can't afford bad publicity).    The animals are NOT poorly treated.   The circuses invest far too much money in them to risk their health & safety.
