High Wire Motorcycle Act, Giant Dragon Egg, Face Painting, Elephants and More!
Party and get a sneak peak at DRAGONS presented by Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey
Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey invites Children Of All Ages to a Sneak Peek into DRAGONS!, a free Special Family Experience for Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex circus fans. The Mederios Troupe will be roaring through the Dallas skyline, as they perform their moto high wire act LIVE. It marks the first time in Ringling Bros. history that the high wire act has ever been performed outdoors.
Kicking off the event will be Ringling Bros. ® Dragon Seeker professing with his four foot Golden DRAGON egg what could be hatching when Ringling Bros. presents DRAGONS opens at America Airlines Center on Wednesday, July 31 including visions of:
- Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson and his sidekick Paulo, presiding over this fantastical celebratory tournament of circus champions that brings together mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats.
- The Shaolin Warriors, from China, executing intense and fearless Kung Fu martial arts dating back to the 5th Century. Masters of their discipline, the Shaolin Warriors will demonstrate powerful concentration and skill by using rapid movements and the sheer strength of their own bodies to twist eight foot long metal rods; break six foot long wooden poles in one precise strike; or be lifted seven feet in the air on the points of five handheld spears
- The Ringling Bros. Clowns, whose side-splitting spoofs, absurd antics and comical parody are guaranteed to keep audiences roaring with laughter!
- Elephant Brunch complete with scrumptious fruits, veggies and hay.
- Meet the performers, get autographs, take photos and be a part of welcoming The Greatest Show On Earth to Dallas!
- Free face painting and balloon artists’ sculptures for kids!
As families capture a glimpse of Ringling Bros. presents DRAGONS, the big question from the Dragon Seeker remains; what will it take to lure a true dragon from its golden lair?
