Last night my kids and I had an opportunity to see the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular show at the BMO Harris Bradley Center in Milwaukee, and it truly is spectacular!  Honestly, I don’t typically have my hopes up high when we go see live shows, and with this one I didn’t either; but I was really amazed and blown away.

The show featured real (animatronic) dragons breathing real fire!  There was a huge projection wall where different backgrounds were not only projected, but the characters used it as part of the show!  They climbed the wall as the scenery changed, and ran across it, flew across it, and more!  It truly was amazing!

Here are a few of our own pics as we made our way into the show, as well as right before the show was starting.  We weren’t allowed flash photography during the show, but I managed to sneak a photo of one of the dragons, with my flash off of course.  🙂

You can see a few more of our pictures in my google + album here:  Dragons Live
