The Circus Experience:
To kick off the The Ringling Bros. experience, a free and open to the public event, the Crescent City Summer Celebration Parade, will be held on June 15 at 11AM at the intersection of Girod Street and Loyola Avenue.

The circus animals will be on parade lead by Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson, along with the show’s clowns and dancers. Guests will also have a chance to win free tickets by catching some of Ringling’s exciting throws!

The parade will begin at the New Orleans Arena and go down Girod Street, left on Baronne Street, up Poydras and conclude on Loyola Avenue. As the parade comes to the end, a “watering” event will be held on Loyola Avenue where spectators will have a chance to see how Ringling keeps its largest and most pampered animals cool in the summer heat.

  1. I love the cotton candy! You're never to old to enjoy the circus!

  2. I love seeing my oldest daughter's expression at the sights and sounds. She also LOVES the acrobats. My youngest daughter has never been and her 1st Birthday is June 17th (that weekend)!

  3. I facebooked and tweeted. I also commented but don't see it....we love elephants right now and would love to go!

  4. Duly re-posted. I actually don't like the circus, but my kids LOVE it and I love them enough to want to go! My daughter says she likes the part where people come out in fancy costumes on horses and the acrobats the best.

  5. Love it all, especially the amazing acrobats!

  6. Hands down, it's seeing the tigers! The trainers look like they are not nervous....BUT THEY ARE! lol
