    Before you buy tickets to any circus, please educate yourselves on what really happens to the circus animals. http://www.circusprotest.com/#!circus-cruelty/c10yc They are abused and taught to live in fear so that they perform. When you buy tickets to the circus, it supports the continuation of this abuse.

    Thank you bylagoon. I don't even have kids but want to voice the concerns many do not even know about this "fun" show.

    I am trying to understand how parents and mom blogs can continue to overlook Ringling Bros Circus USDA fines. In November they paid a record fine for $270,000 for 24 violations of the Animal Welfare Act. In 2009 pictures of Ringling using bullhooks, electric prods, ropes and brute force to make these baby elephants perform circus tricks. Why would any parent want to teach their child that animal abuse for entertainment is OK if we are having fun? I want to shield my family, not expose them to an organization that thinks nothing of beating their animal performers to entertain us.
    If mothers don’t stand up and protect the innocent be they human or animal what hope do we ever have of ridding out society of abuser.

    stephlw: You may avoid the fees if you buy them at the box office (though I'm not sure on that, I'm sure other readers could tell you for sure). Of course, this discount is only good for tickets bought online.

    Mrschizzy ... thank you for pointing that out. I'm fixing it now.

    Is there a way to buy tickets without the fees?
