Ringling Clowns Clown at Erie Children's Museum

Posted: Updated:

Clowns from the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey brought a taste of the circus to kids at the Erie Children's Museum on Wednesday.

The clown duo also visited kids at Erie's library and the Barber National Institute during their Erie trip.

Wednesday's half-hour show was filled with juggling, plate spinning, and pogo-stick jump roping, giving the kids a small preview of what's to come.

The rest of the circus troupe is in Washington State for now, but the circus will make its way across the country to Erie's Insurance Arena on November 1st-3rd.

"We did a show for all the kids just to give them a little taste of the circus. We want to get them excited, the circus will be here in only one month," said Andrew Scharff, a clown of the Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey. "There's all kinds of animals, there's all kinds of artists, there's knife throwers, there's a Mongolian strongman, there's acrobats, jugglers, a lot of great stuff."

The company is presenting a show called "Fully Charged." Erie is one stop in its 40-city tour around the nation.

Tickets are available for purchase at www.Ringling.com, or through the Erie Insurance Arena Box Office (814) 480-6010.

Tickets start at $20 dollars, and are $15 dollars on opening night.
