"Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth" came to Orlando a few weekends ago. Acrobats from 17 different countries will performed on stage at Amway center. The circus also featured 95 different tamed animals in spectacular stunts and tricks and the event was perfect for families consisting of all ages.

Modern audiences are used to seeing a little bit of the circus everywhere. Rock stars such as Pink have incorporated aerial acrobatics into their concerts, andBritney Spears' 2009 "Circus" tour was styled entirely around the three-ring spectacle.

But as Marvin Gaye says, there ain't nothing like the real thing.

"Barnum & Bailey's Greatest Show on Earth" has been touring the country for 132 years and it remains a tough spectacle to beat.
