Boom Boom Pow.. Boom A Ring!

Ringling Bros. and Barnum & BaileySchool is starting up this week but that doesn’t mean that all the family fun from Summer has to stop.

Get out your red noses and funny wigs because the circus is coming to town at the Rose Quarter starting September 15th!

The newest show from Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey called Boom-A-Ring features fun and thrills that draw you into the show from your seat.
Your guide for this ride is Thrilllusionist David DaVinci who performs astounding transformations and illusions and includes his fantastical flock of eight rare and gorgeous birds. With African Greys, Cockatoos and Macaws you will soar around the arena in fantasy.

Adding more majesty are performances from The Clowning Caveagna Family, Kung Fu Kings, The Salsations (high-flying teeterboard and Russian bar act), Poyarkov Brothers (acrobats on pencil wide, criss-cross, low wires), Hans Klose and his performing K-9’s and many more!

Combine all that excitement with the All Access Pre-Show Circus Party which kicks off an hour before the show and you have a night to put in the scrapbook. The Pre-Show is free to any ticket holders and allows you to join the performers on the circus floor. You can participate in a Conga line, learn circus skills, try on costumes created exclusively for The Greatest Show On Earth®, and go behind-the-scenes to meet our animals and trainers! You can even register for a chance to win a masterpiece created by one of Ringling Bros.® artistic Asian elephants.

The show runs from September 15 thru the 18th and tickets are on sale now through the Rose Quarter Ticket Office, they range in price from $15-$42 and kids tickets are $10 (does not apply to VIP seating.)

Want to take your family?? Want to WIN tickets?!?

We have 3 sets of Family Pack Tickets (one for Friday 7:30p, Saturday 3:30p, and Sunday 1p) to giveaway. Each set includes 4 tickets and again you get access to the pre-show which starts an hour before the actual show begins. Because the tickets are for specific shows they will be awarded on a first pulled, first choice basis. The first winner pulled by the widget will get first pick, second winner gets second pick, and so on.

When you complete an entry method make sure that you click the button next to that method on the widget to ensure that you are entered. All entries will be verified.

GIVEAWAY ENDS Sept. 11th at 9:01pm

Disclosure: My family was given tickets to attend the opening night of Boom-A-Ring as compensation to host this giveaway.

  6. I would do an act with my dog.

  7. Jenna Wood says:

    Reading the book Water For Elephants made me fall in love with circus life, at least circus life of the past. It seemed so dangerous and exciting. I would have liked to have been a contortionist!

  8. I would want to work with the animals ( : The more exotic the better

    I would be a tightrope walker….

  10. Joyce Powell Morin says:

    I always thought it would be really cool to travel with the circus as a clown! Someday I hope to volunteer as a clown in hospitals and nursing homes.

  11. Chris Jenkins says:

    I think I’m too big to tightrope…I guess I better tame a tiger!
