Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® Circus performers of the two- and four-legged variety arrived on the University Park campus yesterday afternoon and set up camp behind The Bryce Jordan Center, where the 131st Edition of The Greatest Show On Earth® will be featured Thursday through Sunday.

The show features animals and aerialists, clowns and contortionists, dancers and daredevils. One hour before showtime, the Three Ring Adventure® invites children of all ages to join the act.

Tickets are $10, $15, $18 and $25 and are available for the shows, which will be held at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25; 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26; 11:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 27; and 1 and 5 p.m. Sunday, April 28. For tickets or more information, click here.

After the animals settled in, the setup for the shows began in earnest inside The Bryce Jordan Center. On Friday, Bo stopped by the parking lot behind Beaver Stadium to toss a football with some of the Nittany Lions. For larger photos of the fun, click on the photos below.
