Woot! Woot! Can you believe it’s 2010? Oh my heavens, I’m STILL getting used to. & Writing the date, definitely isn’t second nature for me. Let me tell you, I am so excited for 2010, because we have got some exciting things up our sleeves. & You don’t have to wait long at all…

One of my (& my boy’s) all time favorite events is coming to town – the Monster Jam tour is stopping at Angel Stadium: Saturday, January 16th, 2010 at 7pm, Saturday, January 30th, 2010 at 7pm and Saturday,February 6th, 2010 at 7pm.

So funny story… last year my kids saw the commercials & were begging the hubby & me to take ‘em. Considering they were only 3 & 2 at the time, I was bit surprised that they would be so interested – but, it is Monster Jam & they are boys, so I guess I really shouldn’t have been surprised at all. So THE day arrives, & I (being the awesome mom I am) had never bought tickets, but we decided to chance it. We got everyone bundled up, broke out the ear plugs & headed over to Angel Stadium only to realize the event was totally & completely SOLD OUT. Luckily, I was able to immediately go home & buy tickets for the next week’s event – but I will never forget the disappointment on my boy’s faces. Morale of the story: be sure to purchase your tickets early, because this is one event that is definitely going to sell out every time!

But seriously, why wouldn’t the Monster Jam sell out? From personal experience, I can tell you what an entertaining event it is! According to their website “Monster Jam shows consist of three main elements – the Built Ford Tough Party in the Pits, where fans can meet the drivers & see the trucks up close (my boys were dying when they realized they actually got to see the trucks up close & personal), monster truck racing & monster truck freestyle (my personal favorite).” Plus, any event that requires 300 tons of dirt being brought into Angel Stadium is going to be awesome.

Tickets for the 2010 Monster Jam events at Angel Stadium start at just $10 (for kids ages 2-12) & $20 for adults, and are available for purchase at the Angel Stadium Box Office, participating Ticketmaster outlets, online HERE or charge by phone at (800)217-1700.

Oh, & one more tip…. you definitely don’t want to forget the ear plugs, it gets super loud!
