Summer Cirque du Soleil Contest

Win Cirque du Soleil KOOZA Tickets & Dinner On Us!

Summertime is arguably the best time of the year. Temperatures rise, cocktails flow and we all get an excuse to take a much-needed vacation. But for many of us, summer can become quite a balancing act – you may even call it a CIRCUS! Between entertaining your now-bored, fresh-out-of-school kiddos; getting to that bathroom remodel you put off all year; and squeezing as many beach trips in before the summer fades away, you often end up out of ideas to keep the family entertained. And that’s why Ramada Virginia Beach Oceanfront Hotel and Cirque du Soleil want to help out.

Win a Day at Cirque du Soleil

KOOZA by Cirque du Soleil is making its first-ever appearance in Virginia Beach and performances will run on select dates and times between July 16 - August 16, 2015. A return to the origins, KOOZA combines acrobatic performance and the art of clowning, presented in a colorful melange that emphasizes bold slapstick humor. And no clowning around - we have a bucket of tickets we want to give away all summer long.
