The Greatest Show On Earth is one of a kind, and experiencing the show has been a family tradition for 138 years!

It began on April 3, 1793, when John Bill Ricketts gave the first circus performance in Philadelphia. But for everyone at The Greatest Show On Earth, the real beginning is that moment when the lights go down and the show is just about to start.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents Over The Top, a wacky and whimsical circus spectacular
where dogs fly, Asian Elephants stomp, hop, and groove and one courageous man stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers. Circus Celebrities help rev-up the motorcycle madness featuring one cycle on a high wire and seven speeding riders in a Globe of Steel. Extraordinary aerial acts fill the arena sky with a rare double-decker trapeze and Chinese acrobats propelling through the air. And with the audience participation, this circus really goes Over The Top.

The circus will be in town from Wednesday, March 12, 2008 through Sunday, March 16, 2008 at the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum on Hempstead Tpke. in Uniondale.
