Reading with Ringling Brothers
Earn a free ticket to the circus!
Children ages 2-12 may visit their local library to join the Reading with Ringling Brothers program and earn a FREE ticket to the circus! The Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus will be performing at the Birmingham Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) Arena this year from Thurs. Jan. 24th through Sun. Jan. 27th, and participating children who read five (5) books before then can get a free ticket to see the Greatest Show on Earth!
Here's how it works: Speak with a librarian in the Youth Department at your local public library to register each child (ages 2-12). Each child must read at least five (5) books to receive his or her redeemable ticket from the library. The ticket is redeemable ONLY at the BJCC Concert Hall Box Office with the purchase of one (1) Adult ticket at full price.
So, ladies and gentlemen and children of all ages... what are you waiting for? Hurry up and use your trapeze, unicycle, or clown car to get to the library!
