All of my life I’ve experienced lots of things: skydiving, eating cricket stir fry, and even riding my bicycle with no hands on my 21st birthday.

But I’ve never experienced one thing: a good old-fashioned circus. I’ll be able to get my chance though because the Big Apple Circus is coming to the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre! With its new show, Legendarium, the circus celebrates its 35th season as one of the most respected and classic experiences a person could have under the big top.

The Ringmaster takes you back in time to experience some of the greatest performers and animals the circus is known for. From hilarious clowns to soaring aerialists, this circus offers a great time with seats that aren’t more than 50ft from the ring. Pretty good deal if I do say so myself.

This sounds like so much fun really! I’ve never been more excited to smell elephants and eat popcorn while clowns get hit in the face with creme pies. The thing about this circus is, it’s a lot more than that! And that alone makes me even more excited.

The circus will be in town from February 1st-18th, so HELLO– perfect Valentine’s Day date. Who can say no to a cupcake under the big top? Well not with this deal. The Big Apple Circus is offering a Valentine’s Day special where you can actually eat dessert in the ring! What? That sounds so fun! I wish I had someone to do that with. My mother even said she didn’t want to tag along. Do they have a “Forever Alone” special?

To purchase general tickets and Valentine’s Treat tickets (limited availability), go to
