This contest is over! Congratulations to our winner: kirstenhale2000!

Next up in our Month of Mom contests is four tickets to see the Zoppe Family Circus when it stops in Raleigh later this month!

For more than 160 years, the Zoppe Family Circus has traveled Italy, Europe and the world, performing classic circus acts in an intimate setting. An actual Big Top tent will go up on the front lawn of the Meymandi Concert Hall and the Duke Performing Arts Center for the six performances, which are scheduled from May 17 to May 19.

The show stars Nino the clown and includes acrobatic feats, equestrian showmanship, canine capers, clowning and lots of audience participation, according to the circus' website.

Advance tickets are $15 and $10 for seniors or $20 and $15 at the door. Children 6 and under are free with a paid adult (with a limit of two children per adult ticket). Showtimes are 7 p.m., May 17; noon, 3 p.m. and 7 p.m., May 18, and noon and 3 p.m., May 19. Click here for ticket information.

I have a four pack of tickets to give away! The winner picks the showtime!

    Yes, OF COURSE. Haven't we ALL be there, REALLY! I am a proud mom of THREE, it seems like I am center ring on a daily bases. No need to dream of running away to the circus, I am a member of one everyday! :-)

    I must admit there are times I wish I could run off to the circus. Instead, when my son says"Moooooooooooom?" I tell him, "I have changed my name- if you can guess it, I will answer you." ;)

    I've definitely felt like I was in a circus (tight rope walker) but I've never thought about running away to the circus. The spa or the beach is definitely where I would prefer to run away!

    With my 6 and 3 year olds, I feel like I'm already in a circus. Everyday. I would much rather run off to the spa!

    Years ago when I woke up to my baby daughters diaper having broken open, and finding gel crystals (from inside the diaper) all over her and her crib!

    Yes, but then I try to figure out what my "job" would be while with the circus, and being a mom is much better than ANY JOB they could give me!!!

    Not really, because I know these are days that will go by quicker than a blink of the eye!!

  • amberlbabcock May 7, 2013

    Sometimes, but then I remember what a privilege it is to be their mom.
