Leave a comment on this blog post with your favorite part of going to the circus and
 your first and last name if I don't personally know you.

Legal type stuff:

Must be 18 years old to enter. Limit one entry per household, please. This contest is only open to North Texas residents who can attend the 7:30 PM performance on July 27th. Winner is responsible for parking costs (Parking at the AAC is $15-$25 depending on the lot). Photo ID will be required at WILL CALL to pick up the tickets on the day of the event. You won't know the exact location of the seats until you pick up the tickets. There will probably not be adjoining seats available for you to purchase. Deadline for entry is July 10th. Winner will be announced on July 11th at 3:00 PM. If the winner doesn't contact me by July 12th at 3:00 PM (Central), I will draw again for a different winner. Second-choice winner must contact me by July 13th at 3:00 PM (Central). Third-choice winner will have until 3:00 PM (Central) on July 14th to reply. If third-choice winner fails to reply, I will give the prize to the first respondent after I post on July 14th. 

Good luck!

  1. Cool! The kids love the acrobatics and I love not having to worry about how loud the kids get.

  2. OmG! awesome, i was hoping to find some good tickets but this would be even cooler! I know Finn would love all the happenings..He would be into the animals more than anything...He is my little future vet!

  3. I hope I win, we could use a low cost escape from the house. I love how lost in the amazement of it all you can get at the circus. So many things to see and hear... I would love the boys to experience that and remember it forever.

  4. We've never been to the circus so I can't comment on that, but yah...we'd love to go!

  5. Never been to the circus, but it's something you have to do once in your life, right?

  6. I like the trapeze artists! What a great giveaway - thank you!

  7. I love the high wire acts! Alexandra Murray

  8. I love the circus and so does Kevin. We wanted to take Alenya last year but were unable to. I am amazed with the elephants every time I see them. Such large animals able to do so many intricate stunts. Alenya's favorite animal is the elephant. She calls them ELIfarts LOL..
    *I added a comment a few weeks ago but it must have not shown up :O(
