"Children do not need to learn to be better, told what to do or shown how. If they are given access to enough of the world, they will see clearly enough what things are truly important to themselves and to others, and they will make for themselves a better path into that world than anyone else could make for them."

The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus
(Preview and Giveaway)
What is more exciting than the circus? Clowns, tigers, elephants, acrobats, cotton candy and more! The last time I went to the circus I was in the 2nd grade and I can still remember the excitement I felt when I saw the clowns, at the time and on up into high school I really wanted to be a circus clown!
I have not had the opportunity to make my children but thanks to the generosity of some folks behind the scenes I am not only getting the chance to take my children to the Nashville show but I have also been given the opportunity to offer a giveaway in which two of my local readers will be given a chance to win a family 4 pack to the Nashville Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus!
This year is the 143rd anniversary of Ringling Bros. Circus and the theme is "Built to Amaze"! Here is a little sneek peak of what you can look forward to:
As I was checking out the website I also noticed a few more things worth mentioning.
For those of you that homeschool or unschool your children Ringling Bros. has put together an awesome educational packet that explores such tings as how to juggle, circus glossary, animal care, science and more! Just click the heading "Fun Zone" and scroll down to "Circusworks Education Center".
Did you know that Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey wants to offer your new baby a FREE ticket to his first circus! If you have a child under 12 months old and would like to take advantage of this offer you can find more information HERE.
The last but most amazing things I wanted to mention was do not miss the all access pre show! This is your chance to feel what it is like to be a part of "The Greatest Show on Earth". You get to meet the performers, try on costumes, get your pictures with the clowns, learn a circus skill and even enter to win a painting done by one of the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey elephants! All of this is FREE with your ticket purchase. Find out more information about this event HERE.
Buy It: If you would like to purchase tickets to the Ringling Bros. Barnum & Bailey circus or see the tour schedule and found a show in your area you can do so HERE. If you are in the Nashville area the circus will be at the Bridgestone Arena from January 24th-26th!
