The Circus is Coming to Town!


The Greatest Show on Earth is coming to St. Louis! And we are going to see it!

I know I went to the circus as a child, but I don't have a clear memory of the Big Top. I only vaguely remember some kind of glow-in-the-dark toy I got. But I'd like Evie to experience the magic of the circus. I can already imagine the acrobats and elephants and clowns.

So when I heard Ringling Bros. and Barnam & Bailey is bringing their show to St. Louis in November, I decided to purchase tickets. Grandpa will be in town, too, so we'll make it a family affair! I hope this is the start of a new tradition!

I wish I had known a year ago about the Baby's First Circus program. If I had, this very special "first" for Evie would be FREE! But I do know about a discount code (MCC - pass this on!) that gives you a 20% discount on tickets for the following shows:

Indianapolis, IN - Sept. 4-7, 2008
Kansas City, MO - Sept. 10-14, 2008
Grand Rapids, MI - Sept. 18-21, 2008
Denver, CO - Oct. 2-13, 2008
Boston, MA - Oct. 8-13, 2008
Cleveland, OH - Oct. 24 - Nov. 2
Chicago, IL - Nov. 6 - 30, 2008
St. Louis, MO - Nov. 6-9, 2008
Auburn Hills, MI - Nov. 12 - 16, 2008
Highland Heights, KY - Feb 27 - Mar. 1, 2009
Cincinnati, OH - Mar. 4 - 8, 2008


Stay tuned in November - I'm sure we'll have a story and lots of pictures!

You might also try Circus Flora in STL - my sister in law took her girls this summer and they loved it.

We went when Dennis was two and actually left when we saw the hundreds of protesters. They are coming near us again but I dont think we will be back after the research I did on animal cruelty and Ringling(http://www.circuses.com/ringling.asp). Have an awesome time you all will love it I hope!

I've never been either, but my son was so afraid of clowns that I don't think he could've gotten past that to see the show! They're coming to Indy this weekend, and some of my co=workers are going. It's about 60 mi. from us.
