The Ringling Brothers’ “Over the Top” circus is in Fort Worth until August 16 – and I have a great way to get cheap seats! Right now, you can get tickets for just $11 each. Go to and find your desired show date, then select a minimum of 4 tickets under the “MC Promotion” option (don’t select “full price”), then choose the $11 tickets from the dropdown box. There will be a blank box to the right – put in the code word MOM. Ticketmaster also adds a fee of $3.50 per ticket, unfortunately…and, as you might expect, the seats aren’t the best in the house. But hey, it’s the circus! What a fun, non-expensive way to say goodbye to summer vacation.
