When we took the kids to see Monster Jam a few weeks ago, they saw an ad for another Feld Show, Nuclear Cowboyz. It looked like a lot of fun -- like a motorcycle stunt show, martial arts demonstration and pyrotechnics spectacular all rolled into one -- and since it involves motorcycles, it was right up the boys' alley. Imagine our surprise when Feld Entertainment invited us to watch Nuclear Cowboyz when it comes to San Jose on March 29-30! The kids were so excited, and even though I'm not a motorcycle fan like my kids and husband, watching Monster Jam has taught me to stay open minded and expand my horizons. I enjoyed Monster Jam, and I think I'm going to enjoy Nuclear Cowboyz even more! I've since found out a bit more about the show, and it promises to be a pretty amazing spectacle. Here’s the official show description:
About the show
