This Week in Tallahassee: Heeeeeeere Coooooomes the Big Top

Boogie on down with the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus, coming to Tallahassee-Leon County Civic Center Thursday to Sunday.

Arrive early, and join the fun at the All Access Pre-show Party. Here you can rock the night away learning the latest dance moves from the Ringling Bros., and “clown” with DJ Dean.

The pre-show party doesn’t stop there because there will be a chance to “style in glitzy costumes, learn balancing and juggling skills,” according to the online Tallahassee Civic Center event page.

Early arrivals to the pre-show will also get the chance to take pictures with circus stars, and get a backstage look at the striking exotic animals, including the Asian elephants.

There will be six shows, and the ticket price varies depending on the seating sections. The front row on the floor is priced at $35; rows 2-3 on floor is priced at $30; North Risers is priced at $25; Lower Level and Ring seats are priced at $20; and Club seats and upper level is priced at $15.

Kick off the performance on Thursday, at 7 p.m., and the following shows will be Friday at 7 p.m., Saturday 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., and the last two shows will be Sunday, at 1 p.m. and 5 p.m.

Tickets are on sale now at the Civic Center Box Office and all Ticketmaster Outlets. There is also a chance to charge by phone at 850-222-0400, or 800-322-2602.
