The circus is coming! The circus is coming! Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey circus will play Madison Square Garden from March 31 - April 5th. And on March 9, 2007, circus performers did a mini-performance outside the Garden to promote the circus and also as entertainment for a group of children from the Salvation Army.

And to remind us of the newly "moved-up" Daylight Savings Time, a large clock was hoisted up the Garden wall and famed clown Bello Nock scaled the wall to move the hand back.

Here is a quote from the Madison Square Garden website: Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey presents BellobrationSM, a high-energy circus extravaganza featuring the mischievous, yet endearing, comic daredevil Bello, whose iconic tall orange hair, hilarious antics and fearless approach to daredevilry have prompted his meteoric rise in popularity. Bello performs alongside exotic animals including majestic and agile Asian elephants, Royal Bengal and white tigers, as well as an international cast of gravity-defying acrobats, all in an electrifying story line guaranteed to captivate Children Of All Ages. Circus-goers will witness jaw-dropping stunts, high wire high jinx, adrenaline-pounding trapeze, and more. Throughout Bellobration, audiences will witness performers, human and animal, joining forces and taking their skills to the limit of possibility. One step into the arena and spectators will encounter a visually dazzling display that instantly transports them into a magical world of lights, colors and pulsating music. Audience participation is the final ingredient that fuels the interactive and energetic atmosphere making Bellobration the must attend event for families across America."
