Ringling Bros. Bring A "Fully Charged" Show To Delmarva - 47 ABC - Delmarva's Choice

Ringling Bros. Bring A "Fully Charged" Show To Delmarva

Posted: Updated:

WICOMICO Co., Md. - The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey bring The Greatest Show on Earth back to the Wicomico Youth & Civic Center this weekend with their Fully Charged tour. 


WMDT got a sneak peak in what you can expect to see. 

It may look like a cake walk, but one wrong step on the tight rope could lead to disaster. Performer Maria Dominguez knows all too well - she's been in practice for more than 16 years. 

"Each act is very dangerous, because you can see in the high wire, we don't use any safety line, any net. So if you make a little mistake, it can be very painful," she said. 

Strongman Battula Battogtokh from Mongolia, can catch a 16 pound bowling ball with his neck. 

"When you're working with heavy stuff, it needs a lot of control, stretching, lifting on my arms - when I catch on my neck, it needs a lot of stretch and a lot of practice," he said. 

The tricks don't stop there. You'll get to see him juggle a 14 foot, 70 pound log on his back. 

The circus will be in town all this weekend through March 10. Tickets start at $20. You can purchase them at the door, online or via phone. 

All tickets get you total and free access to the pre-show where you can mingle with the performers and interact with the animals.
