"Greatest Show on Earth!"

Who says you have to be a kid to attend the “Greatest Show on Earth?!” Well, my fiancé, and I joined our neighbors for a fun filled night at the circus at the James Brown Arena downtown.

The Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus made its way to town, and what a great show they put on! From the incredible acrobats, elephants, tigers, to the cats and dogs-it was a great time for everyone!

I will say that I remembered it quite differently as a child- but it was still a great night out in downtown Augusta! There are always many different types of events going on in Augusta-and the circus is one I’m glad we didn’t miss!!

Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean at the James Brown Arena


Last weekend my fiancé, my best friend, her husband and I went to a country concert here in Augusta. We went to see Luke Bryan and Jason Aldean at the James Brown Arena- what an awesome show!!!

The place was sold out and downtown Augusta was packed!!! The show lasted for about three hours and was full of energy. It was a great time with friends and running into a few people we knew.

Seeing downtown Augusta full of people of all ages was really exciting. This was a great show for everyone! I’m looking forward to many more great shows coming to the James Brown Arena and The Bell Auditorium this year-and my personal favorite, artist Carrie Underwood in May!

Cirque du Soleil in Augusta!

What a fun night out. No kids this time. My girlfriend, Miriam, and I went to see Cirque Du Soleil – Alegria at the James Brown Arena in Augusta, Georgia. We met at Nacho Mama’s in downtown Augusta for dinner first. The place was hopping for a Wednesday night. In line in front of us to order was the owner of a great art shop just a block down – Art on Broad. Kristen was with her sister and nieces, also heading to the show. At Nacho Mamas, you order at the counter because they “don’t need no stinkin’ waiters.” My fish tacos were fantastic and I am guessing Miriam’s spinach and mushroom quesadilla was not bad either, because neither of us left a crumb on the plate.

The James Brown Arena is just two blocks off the main street in Augusta, so we were there just in time to make the 7:30 show. We did stop for two seconds to say hello to the arena general manager, Monty Jones, Jr. He was in the box office just making sure things were running smoothly for the opening night. I do love that about Augusta. Seeing people you know – and seeing people caring about their job.

At any rate, the show was fantastic. If you haven’t seen a Cirque show – you should. It is amazing what they train these humans to do. It’s just a testament to human athleticism, endurance and choreography-plus some fabulous costumes!  Miriam said it made her feel like she needed to work out. Please… Miriam is tiny and in great shape. For me, not in shape or tiny, but they made it look so easy that I thought for sure “I could do that.”

It was a great night out in downtown Augusta, Georgia – a fabulous dinner and great show at the James Brown Arena. I can hardly wait for the next fun show to come to town.
