Legends – Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey Circus Coming to Orlando


What does the circus mean to you? To me it’s history, tradition, beauty, feats of human bravery and incredible talent all wrapped up into one spectacular pageant. In short, it’s Americana to the 10th degree. No one has done it longer and better than the Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey Circus and they’re coming to Orlando (and soon a town near you) with their latest production – Legends!
