If you can’t wait for the Ringling Brothers Bash show at Stabler in the end of October, now you don’t have to! The Ringling Brothers are coming to First Friday. They’re bringing a coloring station, a Barnum Bash Party Hat Craft, and a face painter to paint Ringling Bros. and Barnum &  Bailey accents, free of charge! They will also be handing out discount coupons. In addition to all of the usual specials from our local merchants and restaurants, welcome the beginning of October with jugglers, hoola hoopers, unicyclists, musicians and more all Under the Big Top.

So, what can you expect from the Bash?

  • Ringlettes, who are the stylish hosts of the swankiest circus party in town. The Ringlettes are ready to invite Children of All Ages in on the hippest circus spectacular that The Greatest Show On Earth® has ever produced!
  • A rockin’ Pre-show party happening directly on the arena floor an hour before the show, free with your ticket. Party goers can learn fresh dance moves from Ringling Bros. clown DJ Dean, style in glitzy costumes, learn balancing and juggling skills, meet and take photos with circus stars, and even step behind the curtain for an exclusive backstage experience which includes an up-close look at the most exotic animal menagerie only at Barnum Bash.
  • Amazing international acts including Dimitri the Strong Man, Motorcycle Mania, Epic Asian Elephants, Wheel of Steel, and Hand Balancers. All are tricked-out for the circus party and ready to perform wild feats of wonders and strength, to contemporary pop music and in 21st century Barnum style.
  • and Anton, a loveable, goofy hipster clown, who just wants to be part of the fun. Ringling Bros. Presents Barnum Bash is all the rage with outlandish thrills, hilarious high-jinks and majestic animals, but can Anton with his non-stop laughable antics persuade us all that there’s not just one right way to party!?!

It will be hip, it’ll be fun, it’ll be amazing and First Friday will be a great introduction to the upcoming show, but get tickets to the circus too! They’ll be in town from October 25 through the 28.
