Ringling Bros. Giveaway

It’s that time of year in the Dallas/Fort Worth area:  The circus is coming to town!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® presents BARNUM 200® is coming to American Airlines Center, July 27-August 7, and Fort Worth Convention Center, August 10-14. This monumental, once-in-a- lifetime event celebrates The Biggest Birthday Bash in Circus History in honor of P.T. Barnum’s 200th birthday. For more information, visit  

We love ourselves some circus and I know many of you do also.  So I took up the opportunity to give away a 4-pack of circus tickets for Wednesday, July 27th at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.

To enter, just leave a comment on this blog post, including your email address, and tell me what 4 lucky people will use the tickets.

For additional entries:

  • You may leave an additional comment on this blog post for another chance to win if you tweet about this giveaway.  Please include a link to your specific tweet in the additional comment.
  • You may leave an additional comment on this blog post for another chance to win if you post about this giveaway on Facebook.  Please tag WayMoreHomemade in your post so that I can see it.

I will draw a winner on Friday morning, July 15th.

The fine print: This giveaway is only for 4 tickets to the July 27th show.  No additional tickets are available.  Nor are they available for any other date.  Please make sure that you can attend the show on that date before entering the giveaway.

And even if you do not win the giveaway, I hope you will try to go to the circus with your family.  It has always been such a good memory for our family and a nice break from these dog days of summer.  If you are going to purchase tickets, you should make note of the following:

  • The show will be at the American Airlines Center, July 27-August 7, and Fort Worth Convention Center, August 10-14
  • There is a military discount available to our service members.  More information can be found at this link.
  • Reading with Ringling Bros. is back again!  Kids from ages 2-12 can visit participating libraries and earn a free ticket to the circus by simply doing their summer reading.  Here’s a link to the Dallas/Fort Worth pages…
  • Ringling Bros. is offering a free ticket to newborns!  Check out this link for information.

Note:  My family and I were compensated with tickets to the circus for the publicity that my blog posts and this give away affords.

We would ABSOLUTELY LOVE to win these! My 2 yr old son Cameron and I went both for the first time last year for ZING ZANG ZOOM. It was AMAZING! We would take my parents, his Grandma and Gramps with us. (Gramps is his favorite person.) Thanks so much for the opportunity!

Well, we have never actually been to a Ringling Bros. circus!! I've gone to the Shriner's circus before, but that's it! So...if I win, I would want my family of four to come, but in all likelyhood, the boys would be naysayers to that idea. If I won, it would be my daughter and I, along with 2 of her friends. That would be a great girls' day out!
