ATLANTA (CBS46) -

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus and Professional Bull Riders are performing in Atlanta over the weekend.

The circus will perform at Philips Arena Feb. 15 - 20 and Feb. 23 - 26 at the Arena at Gwinnett.

Before each show, step inside the rings one hour before showtime to visit with the elephants and dogs, learn how to juggle with a clown, or participate in our dance party. It's free to all ticket holders.

For ticket information, visit www.ringling.com, call Ticketmaster at 404-249-6400 or visit any Ticketmaster retail location.

The 2012 Professional Bull Riders Built Ford Tough series returns to the Georgia Dome this weekend for the first of four stadium events.

Atlanta is the seventh stop of the 2012 series, featuring the best bull riders and bulls in the world, on Feb. 18 for one action-packed night.

PBR will be transforming the Georgia Dome into a dirt arena, bringing in more than 1,500 tons of dirt on Thursday. Once the dirt is in place, seven 53-foot semi tractor-trailers, three pick-up trucks, and a gooseneck trailer will be unloaded into the arena, and over 300 individual pieces of fence panels will be erected using more than 1,200 hours of labor from the PBR's dauntless road crew before the first bull is bucked at 8 p.m. on Saturday.

Bull riding starts on Saturday, Feb. 18, at 8 p.m. Tickets can be purchased at www.Ticketmaster.com, the Georgia Dome box office, and by telephone at (800) 745-3000.
