Somehow we have manged to wrangle 8 VIP floor seats (YES! VIP! 8! ) to Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Presents The Coney Island Illuscination for their opening weekend on Sunday, June 20th! That means that TWO families can each win 4 tickets!
VIP Floor tickets mean you can see David DaVinci’s illusions up-close, watch the Kung Fu Kings dive through hoops of sabers blindfolded, the Barons of Balance leap from wires and see the extreme hair-hanging act from your hair-raising seats. Of course, you will also see what Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey are famous for: the clowns, animal acts (golden lionesses, a rare white lion, the Asian Elephants) and general silliness. 90 minutes pre-show you can go to the Animal Open House – FREE to all ticket holders, where you can meet Ringling Bros. performers and animals and learn circus skills.
What you win again (in case you couldn’t see it through all my exclamation points): You will win 4 VIP floor seats tickets for Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey’s opening weekend: Sunday June 20. The winners can choose between the 1p.m. or 5 p.m. performances.
How to enter: Tell us your favorite Brooklyn or Manhattan playground and why! Just leave a comment here or on our Facebook page. (You can enter as many times as you like.)
Notification: The winner will be picked through a random number generator (random.org) and will be announced on this blog next Friday, May 28th. Check back!
