What an eventful Thursday night at the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus performance held in Baltimore, MD at the 1st Mariner Arena. This wonderful experience was made possible by Mom Central and Feld Entertainment. (How's that for a little linky love?)
Pictured on the left are Me (Keonte') and my son. Pictured on the right are Tamara and her daughter. Thanks to the nice gentleman who volunteered to take our picture (Never did get your name). I am usually a 10-second-timer picture-taker myself, but this worked out much better.
It was such a rainy day in Maryland. Normally you would catch me kicking and screaming to get out of my pajamas, take a shower, get dressed, and actually leave the house in weather like this. However, I am still a big kid at heart, so there was no way I was going to miss Over The Top. Here is picture of the crew braving the rain. Check out the looks on their face. Not sure if it's because of the rain, or the fact that I am always taking pictures of them. Hmmmmm?!
Upon arrival at the 1st Mariner Arena in Baltimore, we went on a
unnecessary search for the special Mom Central/Feld Entertainment events. We left the house on time, but the rainy conditions cause major back-ups on I-97, and you know how that story goes.
After a few walks around the building, and several attempts to retrieve proper directions from the
useless customer service representatives, we found Waldo. Well, maybe it wasn't Waldo whom we were attempting to locate, but I think we may have spotted a few circus-goers with similar hats. Case in point:
<----------------Check her out. Can you believe this hat came with it's very own Cotton Candy?
Once we were let behind the 'secret ropes' and the ramp leading to the events, we knew there would be fun for the remainder of the night. I checked in, signed my name, accepted a goodie bag (filled with a coloring book, a program of the show, and tons of clown noses) and was handed my 4 FREE tickets. THANK YOU VERY MUCH!
We headed over to the snack table. There were chips and drinks of sorts. You know circus treats. There were children of all ages sitting at tables, chasing their sibling(s), waiting
We took photos with a few of the performers during a special 'Meet & Greet'. Here we are with some of the performers from the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey circus:
