Weekend Happenings: Circus, Festivals, Horse Racing & More
The Ringling Bros & Barnum & Bailey Circus is in Atlantic City this weekend at Boardwalk Hall.
You probably know that, though. The Ringling Bros. people are great promoters and they did not disappoint with this week’s well-publicized game of Monopoly between new Atlantic City Mayor Don Guardian and an elephant named Duchess.
Brilliant promotion! Kudos to the mayor for playing along…and for beating the elephant at Monopoly. The Ringling Bros. & Barnum & Bailey Circus runs through Sunday afternoon.
Let me direct your attention to an event I’m hosting this Sunday. The CONTACT Cape-Atlantic Spring Sensation 23rd Annual Auction & Luncheon takes place at Greate Bay Country Club in Somers Point. It’s a fun time for a great cause! Please join me.
