Win Tickets to the Royal Canadian International Circus!
The Royal Canadian International Circus puts on fabulous, family-friendly and entertaining shows. The performances feature acrobats, jugglers and other top-rated talent. We’ve seen a number of their shows and have been very impressed!
The pack of 12 tickets in this contest is good for any of the shows in May this year. The circus is held in a big top-style tent at Guildford Town Centre in Surrey, Concord Pacific Place in Vancouver, and Lansdowne Centre in Richmond.
Twelve tickets was enough for you to take a whole pile of people from your extended family, including a few cousins, grandchildren, grandparents, aunts and uncles. Alternatively, it’s enough to invite a few friends and their families. Either way, it’s enough tickets to have a fabulous time and share the experience with some of your favourite people!
