NEW YORK, NY, February 22, 2008 - City Guide magazine is giving away four free tickets to this season's world-famous Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus, held at Madison Square Garden!  The tickets may be used any time throughout the Circus's New York season, and the contest will run through the end of March.  To enter, click here: http://cityguideny.com/contestform.cfm?id=23.  To view this year's New York schedule, check out www.ringling.com.

The arrival of The Greatest Show on Earth® at Madison Square Garden is one of New York's most beloved annual rituals.  This year's 136th edition of the big-top plays host to three new Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® shows. The first is Over The Top, a wacky and whimsical circus spectacular where dogs fly, Asian Elephants stomp, hop, and groove and one courageous man stands eye to eye with a pack of powerful Bengal tigers. Circus Celebrities help rev-up the motorcycle madness featuring one cycle on a high wire and seven speeding riders in a Globe of Steel. Extraordinary aerial acts fill the arena sky with a rare double-decker trapeze and Chinese acrobats propelling through the air. And with the audience participation, this circus really goes Over The Top.

The all-new Gold Show brings you so up-close and personal to the live action that you'll experience a day at Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey® you never imagined possible! Audiences are just a few feet away from six white Bengal tigers.  Aerialists walk, fly and jump through the air on a high wire, while the Wheel of Steel act leaves you questioning the forces of gravity. And the FREE, All Access Pre-show lets you meet the animals and performers, learn circus tricks and enjoy a taste of the circus before the show even starts!

Finally, the all-new Red Tour allows you to become part of the most exhilarating celebration of the year!  Watch human and animal performers join forces and take their skills to the limit of possibility.  Witness Bellow tempt fate atop the Wheel of Steel and balance on a 7-story high sway pole.  See exotic animals, including Asian elephants, Royal Bengal and white tigers.  Gasp at jaw-dropping stunts, high-wire high jinks, adrenaline-pounding trapeze and more!

There is no proof that Phineas Taylor Barnum ever said, "there's a sucker born every minute." He did, however, say that "every crowd has a silver lining," and acknowledged that "the public is wiser than many imagine."  The excitement with which the public greets this annual event just may be proof that P.T. Barnum was right!
