Special Giveaway For Tickets to the Ringling Bros. Circus

Running Away to Join the Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus

OK, so I’m not really running away to JOIN the Ringling Bros and Barnum & Bailey Circus even though I’d LOVE to hang with the clowns, but I am going... And, I want you to go, too!

I’ve got a FOUR pack of tickets to give to one lucky winner for the show on Thursday, February 17, at 7:30 p.m. at Phillips Arena in Atlanta. There’s also an All Access Pre-Show where all ticket holders can meet the performers and animals, learn circus skills and enjoy a taste of the performance before the show starts. Maybe I will get to hook up with those clowns after all. Ahem.

Norcross, GA--  (submitted by the City of Norcross)  

An opportunity for local, independent filmmakers is being introduced in Historic Norcross, a community known as one of Gwinnett’s top hubs for art and cultural variety. The Filmmaker’s Showcase, hosted by the Norcross Arts Alliance (NAA) is a free event scheduled for Saturday, January 22, from 7p.m. to 9:30 p.m. in the Norcross Cultural Arts & Community Center (NCACC) at 10 College Street.

This showcase features work produced by several filmmakers who produce throughout the Atlanta area and call Norcross “home,” in some cases because they are literally residents of the city, as well as business-based in the area.

Residents Suzan Satterfield and Allen Facemire are veterans in the film-making business as owners of SaltRun Productions.
