The Circus is Coming!

The wonderful ladies at Mom Central and the great folks at Feld Entertainment are sending my family to the circus!

We are thrilled for the opportunity to check out the Ringling Bros. & Barnum Bailey circus when it tours Phoenix in a few weeks. Both B & I have fond memories of going to the circus when we were kids, and haven't yet had the opportunity to take our children.

That will change on June 24, though! We recently went to a circus-themed birthday party, and a dvd of the circus was playing during the festivities. N was entranced by the acrobats, and when I told him we'd see them live in a few weeks, he was thrilled!

If you're in the Phoenix area, you can purchase 4 tickets for the low price of $44! Enter the code "MOM" in the MC Promotion box at Ticketmaster.com. You can purchase additional tickets for just $11/each. (Special pricing not valid on VIP or ringside seats, cannot be combined with other discount offers. Service charges, facility fees, and ticketing charges all apply.)

Opening night is Wednesday, June 24 at 7PM. The circus also performs:

Thursday June 25: 11:00am, 7:00pm
Friday June 26: 11:00am, 7:00pm
Saturday June 27: 11:00am, 3:00pm, 7:00pm
Sunday June 28: 1:00pm, 5:00pm

And now, for the best part! I have 4 tickets to give away to one lucky family in the Phoenix area for opening night (June 24!) Leave a comment below and let me know a favorite memory of yours from a circus. You can earn extra entries by linking to this post, or tweeting a link to this post.

Comments will be open until Tuesday, June 16, 2009. I will draw a winner and contact them first thing on the 17th.

This giveaway is only valid for families in the Phoenix metro area, who are able to attend the show on June 24, 2009.

    Favorite Zoo Memory...oh yes now I remember! When I was about 5 or so, we went to the circus and this really scary clown grabbed me out of the audience, put in a cannon, and was pretending like he was going to shoot me out of it...but somehow a cute little white poodle came flying out instead of me??? Needless to say...I have a fear of clowns, but the kids don't and they would LOVE to go the circus!

  2. I remember always doing fun stuff like the circus or Sesame street live with my Mom and Dad (and Brother) when we went, my Parents always made a HUGE deal out of it. It was always "our" day and that in itself was huge because my Dad worked a lot. I think my favorite part was always the animals or the lady on the trapeze. It's always fun to escape "reality" for a little bit.

    I don't EVER remember going to the circus, but I'd love to give my daughter some memories! Thanks for the giveaway! (bunny@mchsi.com)

  4. Wow! It's been almost ten years since we have been to the circus. The last time was when I was pregnant with my third baby. Although it was a small circus show we all had a great time.

    When I was 6 my parents took my little bro and I to the circus. After a ride on the elephant, on my way back to my mom, I got tail whipped by an elephant on my cheek. It hurt, but I didn't cry. I was having too much fun!

  5. I have never been to the circus! Isn't that sad! I would love to make a circus memory with my kids though! They are the perfect age!

  7. When I only had two children, both very young, I took them to the circus. I remember their amazement that an elephant could paint a picture! They kept asking if the painting elephant was going to come back out again.

  8. Wow!! the circus we haven't been since Megan was a baby. It would be sooo much fun to go :)
