Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents DRAGONS

As a once-in-a-millennium event that honors The Year of the Dragon, Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Presents DRAGONS. Circus performers from the farthest reaches of the earth have assembled for Ringling Bros. Presents DRAGONS to showcase their astounding acts of bravery and astonishing athleticism. Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson presides over this fantastical celebratory tournament of circus champions that brings together mystic dragon lore with authentic circus feats. DRAGONS is a never-before-seen circus adventure of renowned legends and real-life spectacle that is coming to San Diego for eight action-packed shows from August 23- 26 at the Valley View Casino Center (formerly San Diego Sports Arena).

The anticipation builds throughout Ringling Bros. Presents DRAGONS as Children Of All Ages® bear witness to one phenomenal Ringling Bros. circus act after another, from Shaolin Kung Fu Warriors, charging Cossack riders, magnificent Asian elephants, fierce tigers to the frenzied motorcycle Globe of Steel. As the audience observes these and even more real-world displays that pay tribute to the dragon, their continued excitement will bring glimpses of the elusive beast. But, the big question remains; will the audience have the strength, courage, wisdom and heart to lure a true dragon from its golden lair? Be sure to arrive early to experience several exciting interactive elements before the show starts. Opening 90-minutes prior to each performance, all ticket holders are invited to tour the Animal Open House to get up-close with the amazing animals.

Families can join Pre-Show Host Andre McClain on the arena floor and participate in hands-on experiences such as learning juggling and balancing skills, get performer autographs, see one of Ringling Bros. majestic Asian elephant’s paint a one-of-a-kind masterpiece and meet the Ringling Bros. Clowns, whose side-splitting spoofs, absurd antics and comical parody are guaranteed to keep audiences roaring with laughter.
