every year at this time, the kids start wondering when it will be circus time. i'm happy to announce that the circus is on its way to chicago and this year we'll be seeing...dragons!
to celebrate "the year of the dragon," ringling bros. and barnum & bailey® will bring "dragon tribes" from all over the world to display their amazing skills in a circus "tournament of champions." each tribe will prove that they have "virtues of courage, strength, wisdom and heart to arouse dragons which appear right before your very eyes"! the whole performance is presided over by ringmaster jonathan lee iverson, the first african american (and the youngest) ringmaster in the history of ringling bros. and barnum and bailey®.
the shows are running throughout the month of november. from november 1 to november 11, you can find the show at the all-state arena in rosemont:
from november 14 to november 25, you can see the show at the united center in chicago:
