Win Tickets to Cirque du Soleil Corteo

We have been to many Cirque du Soleil shows, and are always impressed! I am offering my readers a chance to win 4 tickets to Corteo when it come to the Agganis Arena in Boston! Enter below!
More about the show:
Corteo, the latest and most enchanting Cirque du Soleil’s arena production is now touring in North America. The show will visit Boston at the Agganis Arena from June 19 to 30, 2019 for a limited run of fifteen performances. This unique production, directed by Daniele Finzi Pasca, first premiered in Montreal under the Big Top in April 2005. Since then, the show has been a great success and has amazed 8 million people in 19 countries on four continents. 
Corteo, which means cortege in Italian, is a joyous procession, a festive parade imagined by a clown. The show brings together the passion of the actor with the grace and power of the acrobat to plunge the audience into a theatrical world of fun, comedy and spontaneity situated in a mysterious space between heaven and earth. 
The clown pictures his own funeral taking place in a carnival atmosphere, watched over by quietly caring angels. Juxtaposing the large with the small, the ridiculous with the tragic and the magic of perfection with the charm of imperfection, the show highlights the strength and fragility of the clown, as well as his wisdom and kindness, to illustrate the portion of humanity that is within each of us. The music turns lyrical and playful carrying Corteo through a timeless celebration in which illusion teases reality.
The concept and disposition of the stage bring the audience in a theatrical atmosphere like never seen before in Cirque du Soleil arena shows. The set curtains, inspired by the Eiffel Tower, and the central curtains, which were hand painted, give a grandiose feel to the stage. This sets the tone for the poetry of Corteo. 
The cast of Corteo includes 51 acrobats, musicians, singers and actors from all around the world.

Kentucky Kingdom Family Fun in Louisville

Our family loves amusement parks! When we were invited to go to Kentucky Kingdom in Louisville, Kentucky after the VEX Worlds Robotics Competition I jumped at the chance to go. These kids had worked hard competing and it was time to wind down and have some well deserved fun! Kentucky Kingdom did not disappoint, the only thing I wish is that it was warmer and we could experience Hurricane Bay because it looked awesome!
I personally love roller coasters and couldn't wait to try out T3 - Terror to the Third Power! It was awesome with five inversions! I love the feeling of hanging from the tracks. This roller coaster definitely ranked up in the top 10 for me!
Another roller coaster that is the newest addition to Kentucky Kingdom is Kentucky Flyer! We loved it! I always appreciate a good wooden roller coaster.
I liked this roller coaster because it is good for the roller coaster enthusiast and also the newer roller coaster rider. Not too scary but just enough thrills.
Here is a short video on it.
Here you can see Lightning Run!
The park was only open for the participants at VEX Robotics Worlds and it was cool seeing the logo projected.
Here are the kids enjoying Prof. John's Flying Machines.
Breakdance was lots of fun with spinning and whirling.
I enjoyed this one!
There is also King Louie's Playland with lots of fun attractions for the little ones.
Super cute Jump Around Frogs ride.
Who doesn't love a big swing? I love that adults can ride this too if children are a little worried.
The Giant Wheel Ferris Wheel is huge!
Ready for some swinging in the air, try out the Skycatcher. Many of the kids went on it and loved it. I thought it looked really cool at night!
These two didn't leave the ground but demonstrated the ride for me.
There is also a 5D Cinema. It runs every 15 minutes.
Here you can see the pathway to the movie theater that you enter through the gift shop.
They also have a Sea Lion Splash show. Unfortunately it wasn't happening when we were there but it looks really cool!
One of the large gift shops!
In the gift shop  is a Kentucky Show.
What an awesome amusement park!
Next time we will get to experience Hurricane Bay! You can learn more about Hurricane Bay here: 
Make sure to visit Kentucky Kingdom if you are in Louisville, KY!
