Giveaway: win passes to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Present Fully Charged—Gold Edition (6 winners!)

January 25, 2013

UPDATE: The winners are comments #22 Melanie C, #67 Michelle, #32 Katy R., #49 Cindy M., #60 Kim, and #44 Brandy H. Thanks to all who entered!

True story: I was in the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus once. It was when I was four years old, and they were premiering the Living Unicorn. I’ll have to tell you about it sometime, but my job was basically to ride around the rings in a car that was being chased by clowns. It was a traumatizing fun experience. I’m still not really big on clowns…

But, I’ve always loved the circus, and now my daughters do too!

Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus is bringing its Fully Charged—Gold Edition show to the Knoxville Civic Coliseum February 21-24, and I’m so pleased that the lovely folks at Feld Entertainment have given me passes to give away to you all!

First, here’s a deal for everyone. You can currently purchase tickets at KnoxvilleTickets.com or by phone at 865-656-4444 or 877-995-9961. You can also buy them in person at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum Box Office. Mention code SAVE5 for $5 off! (Not valid on VIP, VIP Floor or front row seating.)

Here’s the Show Schedule:

Thursday February 21 @ 7pm

Friday February 22 @ 10:30 am (children’s show) and 7pm

Saturday February 23 @ at 1pm & 5pm

Sunday February 24 @ at 1pm & 5pm

Now for the giveaway…

I am giving away six sets of four passes each; these passes can be exchanged for tickets at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum box office, and are good for all reserved seating tickets except for front row and VIP tickets. You’ll want to redeem passes as early as possible to get the best seats, which is why I’m doing this giveaway so early! Here’s how to win one of the six sets of passes:

Required Entry:

Leave a comment on this post and let me know if you’ve ever been to the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus. That’s it! (If you’re reading this on Facebook/Twitter hop on over to thriftychristy.com)

Additional Optional Entries:

You can do each of the following things for an additional entry in the giveaway. You can only do each of these once, for a possible total of 5 entries. Please leave a separate comment for each method of entry. If you only leave one comment then you only have one entry, as each comment is numbered and I randomly choose a number. Make sense?

This giveaway ends at midnight EST on Thursday January 31. I will choose six winners on Friday February 1 using random.org and will contact them via email. Giveaway open to US readers only.

Disclosure: I received passes to the circus for my family plus additional passes from Feld Entertainment to share with my readers. Tickets will be mailed out to winners at the addresses provided. I cannot be held responsible for any problems with postal delivery. All opinions stated in this post are my own.
