carsonlogo It’s that time of year again – the Carson & Barnes Circus is coming to North Texas, and if you go at the right time, you might be able to see it for free. Go to their website to download the tickets and print them. Here are the links to DFW-area shows. All have shows at both 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. unless otherwise noted:

Burleson (Oct. 29): Tickets
Dallas (Oct. 30, 4:30 & 7:30; Oct. 31, 1:30 and 4:30; Nov. 1, 1:30 and 4:30): Tickets
Weatherford (Nov. 2): Tickets
West (Nov. 3): Tickets

Update 10/27/09: My friend pointed out to me that the fine print on the ticket says “Admit 1 Child or 1 Adult with Ticket Purchase of Equal or Greater Value.” I’m puzzled by this wording. After all, a ticket purchase equal to the value of a free ticket…is another free ticket. So you might be able to print off these tickets and get in completely for free. But maybe not. It might be more like a buy-one, get-one-free deal. So proceed with caution.
