Week 19, Theme 36 – Right Place at the Right Time

During this past year, Feld Entertainment Studios purchased the old Siemens and later General Electric Generator plant on US-301 in Ellenton/Palmetto.  This is a huge facility and has plenty of room for all of Feld’s various entertainment productions.  This facility is now the Global Home for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, Disney on Ice, Disney LIVE, Supercross, Arenacross, Monster Jam and the newest production, Marvel Universe Live.

There are two circus shows, the Red and the Blue shows, that travel by railroad throughout the U.S. over a two-year period.  This is the year for the Red show to return home at the end of November and learn and practice a completely new show to take on the road again, opening in Tampa on January 1, 2015.

If you are at the “Right Place at the Right Time”  you can see part of the 25+ car train parked along US-41 at Port Manatee or another section of the train including the animals stored on the Feld Entertainment property in Ellenton/Palmetto.
