Family Traditions - The Circus

This giveaway is now closed. The winner is Amy Starr WindyCindy.

I remember our family going to the circus when I was a little girl. In fact, I remember going more than once, which must have made it a family tradition.

And one year, don't ask me how I got to be so lucky, but I was chosen to be the princess of the circus. It made me feel so special. There is nothing quite like riding around the 3 rings in a horse-drawn cart while everyone waves at you and takes your picture. My mom says I haven't been the same since. :)

The last time I went to the circus though, was in the 6th grade (not the year I was a princess). I am hoping my daughter doesn't get one of those irrational fears of clowns so we can take her in a few more years.

Well, it's circus time again and I have a 3-ring giveaway for you!
  • A Ringling Brothers Program Book (you know, the expensive one your parents never let you buy!),
  • A commemorative DVD, and
  • Clown noses for your entire family! (assuming you have 7 or fewer family members)
I will draw 1 lucky winner next Monday. There are three ways to enter and you can do any of them you like, for up to three entries:
  1. Leave a comment telling me you want to enter,
  2. Leave a separate comment telling me you subscribed to my RSS feed, or already are subscribed, and
  3. Leave a separate comment with the permalink to my giveaway on your own blog.
That's it. 3 ways to win and 1 lucky winner. This giveaway will end at midnight on Monday, September 15. Contest rules posted here.
