Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey is returning to the DC Metro area with Zing Zang Zoom, a “thrill-filled, mind-blowing circus spectacular where family fun is no illusion.” Illusions like children levitating their parents, a disappearing 4 ton elephant, and a tiger transformation will be part of the fun along with graceful aerialists performing high above the arena floor, human cannonballs blasting through the air, and high-wire walkers skipping across a thumb-thin wire. Chinese acrobats will perform the trapeze on swinging balance beams and two performance troupes join forces to create a never-before-seen Quadruple Russian Fire-Swing while daredevils on dueling Wheels of Steel tempt fate.

If you are planning to go to the circus, feel free to get there early! One hour before show time, families can meet the performers, get autographs, and see an amazing elephant that paints during the All Access Pre-show for free! During the preshow, you can get up close and personal with the performers and even participate.
Last year Captain Computer jumped in the ring to beat the clowns at a game of tug-of-war and Little Miss Techie loved watching Kelly Anne, one of the elephants, paint. Yes, paint! And of course there was the guy on stilts, costumes to try on, lots of clowns, and ladies in sequins. It was an hour of pre-circus fun!
