For the first time since 2017, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Greatest Show on Earth will return to Tampa. But don’t worry, no animals will be harmed in the revelry.
The circus was forced to disband in 2017 amid outrage over animal cruelty. Without animals though, the circus hopes to bring all the joy with none of the controversy.
Acts will include highwire, flying trapeze, an extreme box jump trampoline, balancing acts, a comedy troupe and more.
Tampa is one of 19 stops nationwide. The show will be in town Jan. 5-7, 2024 at Amalie Arena. Tickets are on sale.
