Ringling Barnum Bailey Circus in Phoenix! (Discount Code!)

It was going to be a surprise, but the boys heard me going over our schedule for next week and they were thrilled when they heard me mention the circus. Yes, we will be at the circus next Wednesday and I can't wait to watch the kids again this year.  Last year, they were so amazed at the show and I am eager to see this brand new show this summer.

If you want to join us next week for the Ringling Bros. and Barnum Bailey circus at the USAirways Center in Phoenix, I have some great codes to share with you.  When you head over to, you can use the code "MOM" and receive four tickets for only $44!  You can purchase additional tickets for only $11.

This code is good to all performances (Excludes Circus Celebrity, Front Row and VIP seats).

Opening night is Wednesday, June 23 and the show runs through Sunday, June 27, 2010.  I know we are looking forward to a fun evening, and hope you have the chance to check it out this year!

*Disclosure: We received tickets for opening night in exchange for posting.  All thoughts, opinions and words are strictly my own.*

    Please reconsider taking your children to the circus. They abuse the animals. In 2009, PETA recorded Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus employees for many months and in numerous
    U.S. states. Eight employees, including the head elephant trainer and the animal superintendent, were videotaped
    backstage repeatedly hitting elephants in the head, trunk, ears, and other sensitive body parts with bullhooks and othercruel training devices just before the animals would enter the arena for performances. (A bullhook is an elephant-training tool that resembles a fireplace poker.) A tiger trainer was videotaped beating tigers during dress rehearsals.
    Footage from the investigation can be viewed at Former Ringling employees have reported that elephants are routinely abused and violently beaten with bullhooks. In December 2009, PETA released dozens of photographs taken by a retired Ringling trainer named Sam Haddock. The photos reveal the violent training methods used on baby elephants at Ringling’s Polk City, Florida, training center. The photos, which are available at, depict baby elephants bound with ropes and wrestled into physically difficult and uncomfortable positions by several adult men. According to Haddock’s notarized statement, the elephants scream, cry, and struggle as they are stretched out, slammed to the ground, gouged with bullhooks, and shocked with electric prods. According to him, these violent training methods are the only way an elephant can be trained to perform in circuses.
