The stars from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey brought an extra dose of the healing powers of laughter and "Xtreme" amazement to the pediatric patients at Medical City Children’s Hospital on August 4, 2016. It was a circus party like no other - complete with circus performances, contortionists with astounding grace and dexterity, tickling of funny bones, face painting and games! The patients and visitors met the ringmaster extraordinaire, David Shipman, and his talented team of performance artists. They also joked around with clowns, and learn a couple of circus tricks from the entourage.

Part of the circus performance was streamed on Facebook Live and can be viewed below. To see more photos from this event, visit Medical City Children's Hospital Facebook.
