“The Greatest Show on Earth” Rolls Into Town

The Ringling Bros. And Barnum & Bailey Circus literally rolled into town yesterday...by train.

They open tonight, September 20th, at 7 p.m. for the first of 7 performances through Sunday at the Van Andel Arena, and it promises to be a "Fully Charged" show.
