When it comes to clowns, there is no middle ground. Personally, they make me a little bit nervous. But my kids seem to find them pretty amusing -- so we're heading to see the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus later this month.
The theme of this year's show is FUNundrum. Other than the clowns (which may or may not be a highlight depending on how you feel about them), the show features trapeze artists, acrobats,
contortionists, and Mighty Metal - the strongest man in the world.
Featured animals include horses, ponies, llamas, goats, tigers and even a
Watusi (whatever that is).
The Ringling Brothers and Barnum
& Bailey show is at The Allstate Arena from November 4th-14th
and The United Center from November 17th-28th.
Thinking about taking the little clown enthusiasts in your life to see this show? You can get 4 tickets for a weekday show for $44 dollars if you use the code "MOMS."
Disclosure: I received 6 free tickets to the circus in exchange for helping to promote this event.
