The Ringling Bros. circus extravaganza, Barnum’s FUNundrum!, will play at the Comcast Arena at Everett from August 26-29.

The event will feature 130 performers from six continents, including 15 trampoline bouncers, 10 flipping gymnasts on a teeterboard, six somersaulting trapeze artists, seven motorcycle riders in the Globe of Steel, plus almost 100,000 pounds of performing pachyderms and more clowns than can be seen with two eyes.

Opening 90 minutes before each performance, all ticket holders can tour the Animal Open House to get up-close with the animals. Then one hour before show time, families can step onto the arena floor to meet the performers, learn circus skills and see an elephant that paints at the All Access Pre-Show. Both fun-filled activities are free with a purchased ticket.

Tickets are available at the Comcast Arena at Everett Box Office or by calling 866-332-8499, and online or here.

Comcast Arena at Everett is located at 2000 Hewitt Ave.
