The Circus is Coming to Hershey The Sweetest Place On Earth

Read our Top Five Tips for Enjoying the Show


Grab your popcorn and your family for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s presents Circus Extreme returning to the GIANT Center in Hershey, PA from Wednesday March 25 through Monday, May 30, 2016. A live event suited for all ages, featuring spectacular stunts that you’ve never seen, has long been considered to be “The Greatest Show On Earth.”

With a show destined to leave your heart pumping and eyes astonished, every attendee will need to properly prepare for these mesmerizing acts ahead of them. Here are our top five tips to remember before attending the circus:


  1. Don’t try this at home! Many of the acts in the show are provided by properly trained and experienced individuals. They have spent years training. In fact, this year Ringling Bros and Barnum Bailey’s Circus is celebrating their 145th anniversary of providing family fun through circus extravaganzas to the public.
  2. It is appropriate to “OOH” And “AHH.” Give it up for the trainers and performers who can reach these great heights to entertain you. It’s okay, better yet, it is encouraged to show your enthusiasm for their tricks through applause and appropriate cheering throughout the show.
  3. Splurge on the “good” seats. Although every seat at the Giant Center complex is a “good” seat, it’s worth your money to pay a little extra for the front row. The amazing acts are top notch and the closer you are to the action the more involved you will feel during the show.
  4. Address your family’s fears before the show. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s Circus does a wonderful job of providing some of the acts of the show online through videos and photographs taken from previous attendees. Sit down with your family and discuss all of your children’s fears before attending, that way if he/she is scared of the lions, you can take them on a bathroom break during this section of the show.
  5. Prepare for the excitement! Are you a big adrenaline junky and enjoy the thrill of near-death experiences? If so, fuel the fire with prepping your senses, all five to be exact, before the show. You’ll need them!

Now you’re ready to attend the circus! Don’t leave your glasses at home because this show is going to be one you must see to believe. For more information, visit Hershey Entertainment or to purchase tickets click here.
