Greensboro, NC -- It's called the "Greatest Show on Earth" and for decades has mesmerized children and adults across the nation.
That would be the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus. The name is synonymous with family entertainment.
The circus is at the Greensboro Coliseum this week and provided WFMY News 2 full behind the scenes access as they put together the greatest show on earth.
You could say it's a show 'built to amaze" as the tour stop this week is the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey's "Built to Amaze" Tour.
For dates and times visit Greensboro Coliseum's website. Opening night is Wednesday, featuring guest host Eric Chilton of WFMY News 2.
