Want to go to the circus but feeling the recession's horrible pinch? The Skanner News has a number of tickets we will be giving away and you will have a chance to win them.
On Monday or Tuesday, we will be posting details in the "Latest News" section of our website on how to get your hands on free tickets to Ringling Brothers and Barnum &Bailey's "Funundrum" showing Sept. 2 to 5 at the Rose Garden.
The show features "130 performers from six continents, which includes: 15 trampoline bouncers, 10 flipping gymnasts on a teeterboard, six somersaulting trapeze artists, seven motorcyclists in the Globe of Steel" in addition to elephants and clowns. In addition, "watch the Puyang Troupe from China dazzle with a stunning display of dexterity as they bounce, flip, and twirl to new heights on a two-tiered trampoline. Be amazed as you witness the impossible contortions of The Body Benders who fit three humans in a cube the size of a milk crate. And savor the stupendous skills of the hand balancers featuring Duo Fusion, a married pair of performers with a twist; the wife does the heavy lifting…and much more!"
The event is the 200th celebration of the birth of P.T. "The Greatest Showman on Earth" Barnum and is lead by Ringmaster Johnathan Lee Iverson. One hour before the show starts, families can meet with performers and get autographs
