Circus tickets are for sale locally at these Boscobel locations: World of Variety, Timber Lane Coffee, and Peoples State Bank, and in Fennimore at: Bender Foods and Friederick’s Family Restaurant ($7 for children 2-12 and seniors 65 & $10 for adults). The day of the shows, the prices increase, so stop by ticket locations to purchase your tickets today. Board Members also have tickets!
Here are 4 easy ways for children to score FREE tickets! Stop by the Hildebrand Library in Boscobel and inquire about the “Read the Book” campaign featuring circus inspired books. The World of Variety has a coloring contest entry, which will be displayed in the storefront window. The Boscobel Pool is having a “Peanut Guessing” game to win tickets. Finally, the upcoming Summer School session will feature a “Perfect Attendance” free ticket campaign. Drawings for free tickets will be held the week prior to the circus!
In the works? A “Vino Voyage Via Bus” Tour in the Fall! More information to come! Have a great week!
