Experience The All-New Design Of Circus Excitement: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents…


Coming To San Diego, August 8-11, 2013

{For the second year in a row, my family and I have partnered with this event in exchange for tickets to the show.  It has become a family tradition that my kids love and look forward to every year.  It’s now come to the point that if we ever decide not to work with them as a sponsor, we would still go yearly.  It truly is an experience of a lifetime!!!}

(San Diego, Calif.) – Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents Built To Amaze!, an extraordinarily engineered circus experience custom-built for family fun where Children Of All Ages® find out what it takes to construct The Greatest Show On Earth®. The visionary blueprints have been assembled with a contemporary toolbox of unparalleled imagination that will be unleashed from shipping crates right before the audience’s eyes for the all-new circus spectacular Built To Amaze! at the Valley View Casino Center from August 8-11.

Ringmaster Andre McClain takes the Ringling Bros.® reins accompanied by his horse Comanche, to lead his funny and mischievous circus supervisors to construct a fantastic design of heart-pounding and wondrous performances sure to amaze and thrill audiences. With more than 110 of the world’s best artists & athletes representing 17 countries along with 95 exotic and domestic animals assembled together, Built to Amaze! is highlighted by several unique acts this year including:

~ Nine-time international award-winning comedic animal presenting duo Alex and Irina Emelin of Russia introduce their uniquely-designed brand of magic and humor with their remarkable trained animals including poodles, ferrets, rabbits, snakes and more!

~ The Trampoline Tower Tumblers, a troupe of 10 competitive aerial athletes from the Ukraine who launch themselves from trampolines to scale, repel and pass through a three-story high translucent tower

~ The popular King Charles Troupe hailing from New York City brings one-wheeled excitement to the ring with a spirited and comedic basketball competition featuring 10 whirling unicyclists

In addition, the show features the electrifying high-wire acrobats, daredevil stunts on The Steel Vortex, the youngest female Human Cannonball, remarkable hand-balancing duos, the always hilarious Clown Alley…and of course, no Ringling Bros. circus experience would be complete without our four-legged star performers, including the majestic Bengal tigers presented by the charismatic “Taba” and a fun-filled Asian elephant dance party.
