Clowns, Disney and monster trucks get their start in Manatee County

Feld Entertainment, the producer of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, has quite a juggling act on its hands at its massive production facility in Ellenton. The billion-dollar entertainment business designs and produces Disney On Ice, Monster Jam, the Nuclear Cowboyz stunt show and, of course, the circus at its cavernous Feld Entertainment Studios, which opened last year to support its many tours. Enclosed in a complex second only to NASA in size in Florida is a ìgraveyardî of monster trucks, a field of billboards, circus trains in various stages of rehab and repair and thousands of glittery costumes that date back to the 1970s.
