The Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey Circus performers braved the heat and dressed in full costume Wednesday to put on a show for children attending the YMCA summer camp in Langham Creek.

Ringling Bros. teamed up with Chick-Fil- A to help bring smiles for the Houston area kids.

Clowns performed skits and juggling acts, and BMX riders took literal leaps and bounds to impress the children as they rode along the bike ramps.

The event helped to raise an estimated $5,000 for the YMCA, supporting many of the activities that help the community.

Adam Spegul explained, “We have programs that really strengthen the community as a whole. We have swim lessons that we provide for free during camp to bring them to a swimmer level. We serve at this location about 85 kids each week,” staff member Adam Sepgul said.

The YMCA has been helping the community for man years providing a safe place to learn and grow in after school activities for families with lower incomes.
