Boom-A-Ring An Annual Event For Coney?

After a hugely successful run the folks at the Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus want to make their Coney Island Boom-A-Ring show an annual event at Coney Island.
The Northeast Regional Public Relations Manager for Feld Entertainment, Inc., Paulina Piekarski, told the New York Post, “It makes sense for many reasons to come back to Coney Island, many of which are more than economic”.

Their still needs to be negotiations with their favorite Coney Island landlord as of yet; Taconic Investment. The know not to entertain any business with Thor Equities. Something learned from their attempt this past summer with the untrustworthy, "developer"/land speculator Joe Sitt.

The New York Post wrote:

The Boom-A-Ring’s arrival to Coney Island at the start of the summer came with much fanfare as Borough President Marty Markowitz and City Council member Domenic Recchia joined Mayor Mike Bloomberg at Nathan’s Famous for a few celebratory hot dogs.

Piekarski called the summer engagement “wonderful” and said that ticket sales “exceeded expectations.”

Though PETA - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals will most likely strike up a small tent of their own every summer to house their protesters, the show should be expected to thrive in Coney on an annual basis.

Let's hope the 'Elephant vs. Man Bun Eating Contest' and the 'FDNY's Elephant Bathing on Surf Avenue also become annual events of their own.
