Magical Journey

For the seventh year in a row, Gas South invited over 50 families of children with special needs to the Philips Arena to experience the magic of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Show. The children were treated to a pre-show that allowed them to interact with clowns, animals and performers before the main event. The event is entirely free for the families and made possible through the partnership of Gas South, Metro Atlanta Mayors Association, and Feld Entertainment.In an effort to accommodate a range of special needs, the pre-show activities included sign language interpreters, touch and sound activities for visually impaired children, and seating arranged to fit wheelchairs and other mobility devices.Brianah, 12 along with her dog Julia, enjoyed dancing with the clowns and circus performers in the center ring.Quanaya Bah, 19, of Union City, can barely contain her smile as she prepares for the show.Story Anthonsen, 8, and Rachel Lore, 9, proudly wearing clown paint on her nose, anxiously await the elephant performance ring side.Maria Vescio, 6, and her mother, Ana Vescio, of Woodstock, take a quick peek inside their gift bag.Birthday Girl, Dakota Chamlee, celebrates her 11th birthday at the circus.Four year-old, Betty Jean Jones, takes in all the sights and sounds around her.Bennett Betts, 5, enjoys a center stage dance performance.Q Kellermeyer, 12, and his mother Debbie enjoy a bicycle performance.Many thanks to Dana Johnson, Fleishman Hillard, for allowing us to be a part of this thrilling event.
