MORE FROM RINGLING'S TOUCH & FEEL CIRCUS PARTY FOR BLIND CHILDREN...

Diego Ramirez reaches out to touch a pony during Tuesday's Blind Children's Learning Center visit to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Diego, 5, was with his 11-year-old sister, Bianca, who helped him reach out to the miniature horses, goats, llama and donkeys in the circus ring.
Blind Children's Learning Center student Maya Graves, 5, examines the teeter board before taking a turn being lifted by it during Thursday's visit to the Ringling Brothers Barnum and Bailey Circus at the Honda Center in Anaheim.

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus Host and Exotic Animal Trainer Andre McClain leads students from the Blind Children's Learning Center to the circus floor to learn about the show. About 15 children, their siblings and parents, were able to experience the circus through touch, feeling and smelling the animals, testing out props like the dirt bikes, and wearing and feeling the costumes, props and a treasure chest filled with coins.
