Metropolitan Ministries is a non-profit, non-denominational organization in Tampa that provides food and services for poor and homeless families. Tickets acquired from donating to Metropolitan Ministries will be good for opening night of the circus, which is Wednesday, January 6th at 7:30 p.m. A donation of ten items will allow each person to receive one ticket. There is a limit of four tickets per family, while supplies last. Donations will be collected in front of the McDonalds Box Office at the St. Pete Times Forum.
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey’s Greatest Show on Earth will be held in Tampa at the St. Pete Times Forum from January 6th through 10th. Spectators will see a “rip-roaring motorcycle troupe” who “braves fear and physics in the 16-foot Spherical Miracle”, “height-seeking high-wire artists perform 40 feet in the air, all while at a 45 degree angle,” and “Masters of Musculature use their bodies in the ultimate test to see how far the human body can be pushed in a mind-blowing world of distortion and contortion.” According to Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey, “each extraordinary act blends thrills and contemporary spectacle to over deliver a heart-racing experience that, until now, was beyond imagination!”
Families will be able to visit the animal performers in the free Animal Open House 90 minutes before the show. The All-Access Pre-Show will take place one hour before the show.
