BL252014-Philly-WebAd-200x200When was the last time you had fun with your family? I mean real fun, not edutainment, not sitting through another recital or work event, but real fun. For many people, it has been a while. This week my family and I are in for a treat. We are going to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia to attend a performance of the Ringling Brothers Circus! I am excited because I have not been to a Ringling Brothers performance since I was a child and my children have never been. I am looking forward to sharing this experience with them.

Families today spend a lot of time on business. For parents it is the business of working and providing a home. For children it is the business of school, scouts and recitals. All these things are important and they are part of what make life possible and even interesting. At the same time,there should be more to life than just business. It is important that we take time out to live, to enjoy life and to laugh together as a family.  That is why things like going to a Ringling Brothers performance are important. I am going to the performance on February 12,2014. The following are the dates for the Philadelphia performances: February 12 through February 16.

Readers who comment will be selected at random to win tickets to one of the following performances:

  26. Great contest! I haven’t been to the circus in so long!

  29. It has been many years since I have seen the circus! I love seeing all of the animals and the fantastic tricks the acrobats can do

  34. We saw them in San Diego. It was quite a show, and the kids really enjoyed themselves.

  35. This looks like it would be such an amazing time. My kids would go wild over this :)

  36. I remember going to see Ringling Bros in Philadelphia when I was growing up. I need to take my little kids to the circus. I think they would thoroughly enjoy it. I once took my oldest kids to a circus in Ukraine. It was the weirdest thing I’ve ever gone to!

  37. We just went to the circus earlier this month. Always love the professionalism.

  38. Nice! I’m not far from Philly! I really need to keep up with what’s going on there.

  49. Wow! To tell you the truth, I never been into any circus yet. So what I know about it is based on what I see on TV. I believe it is really a fun and great place to be in. I would certainly would love to try going to a circus. :)

  50. My son isn’t old enough to go to the circus quite yet. However, we went to the fair and he LOVED the animals!

  51. We took our then-almost-two-year-old last spring and he LOVED the elephants. I’m definitely looking into taking him again this year!

  52. Love, love the circus! We took our oldest last year and had a ball. Maybe it’s time we take our two-year old along this year. I think they’ll be in our area in the next few weeks.

  53. Now that’s one way to have family fun! I would love to see a real circus… hope you will all have fun!

  54. Too bad I’m not in Philly, but me and girlies love the circus… actually we are a circus. LOL!

  55. That’s one thing that we haven’t done as a family. I would like to watch a circus show with my kids.

  56. I haven’t been to the circus in years! The kids loved it when they were young.

  57. Oooh, what fun… we haven’t been to a Ringling Brothers Circus in years… hopefully they will be stopping by San Antonio, Texas, LOL

  58. I havent been to a circus in a long time. The kids love to see the elephants.

  59. They were in my area in the beginning of January. I sent one of my contributors to review it for me. She said it was awesome and she really enjoyed it with her kids.

  63. We just saw Ringling Bros. Built to Amaze 2 weeks ago, and it was truly awesome! My three year old son had a great time! The performances are always breathtaking!

  64. I’m not sure how, but when I was little, somehow I was selected out of the audience to be IN this circus. I got to ride around on the little train with a few other kids and a bunch of clowns. Wish I remembered it – I was only about 3. I’ve seen pictures though. Great thing to do with kids!

  65. I’d love to go Wed night! Have you given these away yet?

  66. We went to Ring. Bros last year. My girls really loved all the performances.

  67. We love this circus! and so do our kids!

  68. This sounds like so much fun! I haven’t been to a real circus in many years!

  69. I have never been to the circus but it looks amazing. I’ve always wanted to go.

  70. I haven’t been to the circus in years. Sounds like a fun time.

  71. I have never been to a circus, but they do look so fun! The amazing sites and acts make me excited to visit!

  72. I am horrible at the circus. I have never been able to get into it because I have to sit for so long! LOL That and I have a secret fear of clowns!! Looks like you guys had a great time!

  73. I heard somewhere that ringling brothers used to have a mermaid skeleton on display! I bet that would have been a sight to see!

  74. Sounds like a lot of fun!! :D

  75. I love the circus! I am curious to what age is appropriate to take my daughter. She enjoys the zoo, so would like the animals, but wondering if two is too young. I definitely want to share a Ringley Bros. experience wither her, since I still recall circus memories with my parents:)

  76. Sheri

    I haven’t been to the circus in years! Such good memories come to mind. I think eating popcorn and watching the trapeze acts were my favorite things. You’re right about families needing to take time away from business. The circus could be a great opportunity for that. You can’t really go to the circus in a business suite and work on your laptop. I guess technically you could, but then you’d look a bit awkward LOL I would LOVE to go on Wednesday February 12th!

  77. i always get excited when i hear the circus is coming to our area. it’s always around my birthday and makes me feel like a kid!

  78. How fun! What a great experience to share with your family. I haven’t taken any of my children to a circus either and hope to do so this year – especially since my youngest is old enough to recognize animals and say their names now. Enjoy!

  79. I love going with my grandkid. She and I have the best time and I will be glad when they come back to the Bay Area.

  80. We don’t really attend circus’ but I hope your family has a great time. Ringling Brothers has been in business a long time, I’m sure they put on a fantastic show!

  81. My boys would love to visit the Circus. They are such animal fans!

  82. Man, I haven’t been to a circus in 20 years! I bet my son would enjoy going to one.

  83. My family and I had a ball at the circus! I like the animal acts as well as the high wire performers. This is a great way to get the family out for the night. We love attending!

  84. We go the the circus yearly. My kids enjoy it so much and I pretty much feel like its not a good year unless we see a good circus. I love the whole fun atmosphere.

  85. I took my boys to this a few months ago and we had a great time! Thanks for sharing!

  86. I so want to take my kids to this if they come to NH again, because I recall going with my aunt and uncle when I was little and it was such a fun experience!

  87. The last time we attended the circus my son was four. He is now fourteen. That year was historical for Ringling Brothers Circus because Andre McClain became The Ringmaster. My darling daughter (age ten) would loves to go. I would love for her to that incredible experience.

  88. The circus is one of my favorite childhood memories.

  89. melisasource

    I totally love Ringling Brothers Circus!!! It’s always so amazing!

  90. We did the Circus last year. My kids were sad that we weren’t doing it this year!

  91. The circus is always a good time! My kids went a few years ago and loved being on the circus floor before the performance. I think we need to take Little Mister now that he is old enough.

  92. I haven’t been to the circus in so long…. I can’t even remember. I am glad you let me know they were coming because I would love to take my daughter…

  93. I am so excited for you! I think you will have a wonderful time! I can’t wait to hear all about it!

  94. Wish were a little closer to Philly, I’d totally bring the little guy. I love the circus and can’t wait to have my son experience it for the first time. The trapeze artists are my favorite. Enjoy the show!

  95. Oh I can’t wait until they make it to my city. I love the circus. Brings back so many memories. I wanted to be a trapeze artist. And I remember visiting my relatives in Sarasota during Christmas time as a child and seeing the Ringling Bros. Trains as they were home for winter break. Have fun!

  96. I love the circus! The kids were really small the last time we went, but they are coming to Atlanta so I was thinking of taking them. I hope you guys have fun!!

  97. Tea Queen

    I took my pumpkin to the circus when she was little. she had so much fun!

  98. I still have yet to take my boys to the circus. I wonder if it’s coming to Boston soon – I may just have to get tickets.

  99. Now what can be more fun and exciting than a circus! If you are a kid you are mesmerized and if you are an adult it reminds you of your childhood. The foods you eat are also part of the atmosphere. Ringling Brothers continues to improve the experience that’s why it stands the test of time. Chances are if you went to a circus as a kid this one was it. Thanks for the incredible memories!

  100. It’s amazing how long Ringling Bros. has been around. I remember going to their museum in Florida when I was a child. Very cool!

  101. We went to the circus last year and had a great time. I love the circus and seeing the daring feats and animals.
