The city is providing discounted tickets to see the Ringling Bros.Circus at the prudential center. Ringmaster Andre McClain says this year’s show is built to amaze.

“This year we have 110 different performers from 17 different countries and over 95 animals.”

The $10 passes will be available for Friday night’s 7:30 show. Mayor Cory Booker says some his fondest childhood memories are of the circus and says he is happy to help bring those same memories to the children of Newark.

“This gives Newarker’s a chance to have that same wonderful experience where our kids can see world class entertainment that really engages them and helps to stimulate their imagination their dreams.”

Passes can be picked up at city hall or online at ticketmaster.com using discount code Booker13
