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.

North Fulton Ready to Host Film, TV Productions

And that's exactly what North Fulton County is doing.

North Fulton joins 15 other communities across the state in being the first to earn the special designation of "camera ready" by the Georgia Film, Music and Digital Entertainment Office. Being named camera ready means that a county has a program that provides film and television production companies with easier, faster and better access to local resources and location information.

2009 was a banner year for filming in Georgia, with more than 348 productions bringing an estimated $770 million to the state's economy, according to the Georgia Department of Economic Development. Productions were shot in 50 Georgia counties over the course of the year, impacting local communities throughout the state.
