It's that time of year again -- the time that CC's been asking about since last July. Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents Barnum's FUNundrum! is making its way through SoCal and arriving at Staples Center July 14.
Yes, kids, it's now time to up the excitement level for strong men, trapeze artists The Flying Caceres and, of course, clowns, clowns, clowns. CC loved going to the circus last year and still talks about it.
The event celebrates the 200th anniversary of the birth of showman P.T. Barnum, and according to the release:
"Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson invites the audience to leap aboard the Ringling Bros. Express and go on a family FUNtastic adventure to meet exotic characters and witness thrilling performances that attempt to answer Barnum's FUNundrum, "What special wonders create The Greatest Show on Earth?"
This year, they are also offering The Barnum Award, which will be presented to three Southland kids who are making a difference in their community. Click here to nominate a child between the ages of 8-14.
Produced by Feld Entertainment, Barnum's FUNundrum will be performing at Staples Center July 14-18; Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario July 21-25; and the Honda Center in Anaheim July 28-Aug. 8.
