Every baby born in the United States is entitled to receive his or her first ticket to “The Greatest Show On Earth” absolutely free.

“We began this program in 1993 and the response was overwhelming. We received over 600,000 responses in the first year alone. We feel strongly about our commitment to the family and the future,”said Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey producer Kenneth Feld. “The Greatest Show On Earth is a unique part of America and every child born in this country should have an opportunity to see America’s Living National Treasure.”

The free admission offer is good for one ticket that is redeemable at any time during the lifetime of the child, whether at age 2 or 92.

To receive the child’s first free Ringling Bros. ticket, parents need only complete the registration form in the “Fabulous Family Fun - Special Offers” section of www.Ringling.com or mail their name, address, newborn child’s name and date of birth to:

Baby’s First Circus Program

The parents will, in turn, receive a certificate exchangeable for one admission ticket for any Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey performance in any city in any year.
