As you may have read earlier this morning, the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus is coming to Cincinnati in March and to Dayton in late April / early May. 

We are alway excited and discussing the fun things that we might see and my adorable son is already acting out for us how they do it.  He is trying to convince us that he is the guy that gets shot out like a canonball. 

My excitement does not stop in knowing that Mom Central has allowed us the chance to go to the circus, but in knowing that I have also been given the opportunity to give away 4 tickets to the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus for the opening night show on March 10th, 2010. 

HOW TO WIN?  (You MUST leave a separate comment for each entry-5 possible total.  One comment=one entry, two comments=two entries, etc)  **All entries must be left in the comment section of the BLOG (not Facebook or Twtitter, etc)

  1. Leave a comment telling us your favorite part of the circus.  If you have a story as to why, please feel free to share that as well.

EARN EXTRA ENTRIES BY:

  1. Blog about it, email it or tweet it and leave a comment telling us you did it.
  2. Become a FACEBOOK FAN – and then tell me about it.
  3. Subscribe via EMAIL or READER – and then tell me you subscribe!
  4. Follow on TWITTER and then tell me you are a follower!

This giveaway is compliments of Mom Central and will close on February 28th at 9pm.  The winner will be notified and will have 24 hours to respond.  If I do not get a response, a new winner will be selected and the process will continue until the winner claims their prize.   

After you enter here, please feel free to check out my friends’ blogs as you could try your luck at winning tickets there as well!  GO HERE for more information.

I would love to win tickets because I want to talk my two year old daughter. I loved all of the lights and excitement when I was a kid and I know that she would love it! I loved watching the acrobatics and tightrope walkers. I have mentioned it to my husband several times about going and he said the only way we can afford to go is if we win tickets. I only need two so I would share the other two with another family!! I would love to see my daughters face light up like a light bulb watching all of the animals and eating cotton candy for the first time!

I love the circus, but haven’t been since I was a kid! I remember a clown making me a doggie out of a balloon and thought it was the coolest doggie ever! This will be the first time my 3 yr old will get to go to the circus and I am really looking forward to taking him. He has seen commercials and it so excited to go see the tigers and elephants. Hope I win some tickets :)

We were disappointed last year and paid $100 for 5 tickets. We’d like a do-over

My boys have been to the circus but would love to take my daughter as she’s just now turning 3 and would have a ball. My favorite part is the look of excitement in their eyes when everything is paraded in front of them at the beginning.
