It’s that time of year again. The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus presents FULLY CHARGED! at the Times Union Center from May 2nd to May 6th. The circus is always super-fun, and I’ll be updating you when I hear more about any circus brouhaha, like parading the animals in, feeding the elephants, and more.
And, hooray! Once again, I’ve got two sets of Family 4-packs of tickets to see the show on Opening Night, Wednesday, May 2nd at 7 pm!
To enter to win a Family 4-pack of tickets, comment once on this blog post by Friday, April 20th at 5 pm. Now, you can say anything in the comment, but for those who need a topic, hmm. . . . Last time, I asked folks what your act would be if you ran off to join the circus. Which was fun. But I’ve got to come up with something new. So. Imagine that you go to the circus and have a lovely time, but then you and yours are accidentally locked in the circus venue overnight. Where would you choose to sleep, and why? Keep in mind that I’ll choose winners randomly, so you don’t have to sit there at the computer with writer’s block trying to come up with something unbelievably, winningly witty. Just relax and comment.
This year, I’m just going to pick two comments randomly, rather than making us all do extra work for a second entry like I did last year. But of course, I still appreciate it, always, when you fill out the Playground Survey: Share Details on Your Favorite or “like” or “share” the Capital District Fun page on Facebook. Perhaps that will bring you just the right amount of karma to win you some tickets? Actually, I’ve been hovering at about 920 “likes” for a while now, and I was thinking that maybe I should promise to do something really silly if I reach one thousand “likes”? Cartwheels through Empire State Plaza? Discuss among yourselves. . . .
But I digress.
If the suspense of a giveaway kills you and you just want to just go ahead and buy tickets, you can click here. They’ve got a variety of showtimes, which is good if your kids are usually asleep by 7:30 pm. Whether you win tickets or buy tickets, or if you’re trying to decide whether to go, my review from last year’s circus over on KidsOutAndAbout.com can offer you some insight and logistical advice.
Thanks for reading and participating, and good luck!
