Dralion Cirque du Soleil in Cleveland: a ticket giveaway

Wednesday, February 29, 2012

Cirque du Soleil.

The name speaks for itself bringing the reputation, the acrobatics, the showmanship, the costumes, the entertainment. That being said, how on earth is it possible that with all that very well deserved hype I've never seen a show?


Well that's about to change now that
Cirque du Soleil Dralion is heading to Cleveland Wednesday, April 4th through Sunday, April 8th for seven unique performances at the Wolstein Center.


The show's moniker, Dralion (pronounced "Drah-lee-on"), is drawn from its two main symbols: the dragon, representing the East and the lion, representing the West.

With inspiration drawn from Eastern philosophy, Dralion also features an international cast with 52 world-class acrobats, gymnasts, musicians, singers and comedic characters who have perfected their craft.


The four elements that govern the natural order, take human form in Dralion representing air, water, earth and fire.

The show is going to be great, you guys, and while you can buy tickets online here you also can also win a pair to the Thursday, April 5th performance here on the plum!

To enter:

1. Leave a comment on this post telling me you'd like to attend (making sure to leave your contact information if I don't already know how to get a hold of you)

2. Tweet the following about the contest: " I want to win a pair of tickets to see @Cirque #Dralion at the @wolsteincenter from @clevelandsaplum http://bit.ly/yLaoWj " - you can tweet about this contest daily for extra entries leaving a comment on this post every time you tweet
3. Share a link to this contest on your facebook page (http://bit.ly/yLaoWj)

You have until this upcoming Monday 3/5 at 5pm to enter the contest and I'll be announcing the winner of the pair of Cirque du Soleil Dralion tickets on Tuesday 3/6.


Good luck to all who enter - man, do I love a good giveaway!!


[Disclosure: In return for my posting about Dralion coming to Cleveland and hosting a ticket giveaway I was given a pair of tickets to see the show and I couldn't be more excited to check it out. As always the opinions are my own, yo!]

  28. A baseball owner wanted to put on a promotion to draw more people to the ballpark. He decided he would give seats away to the people who bought tickets at the stadium the day of the game.
