Step right up folks: circus coming to town

Tuesday, April 29, 2008

The second circus of the year is due to roll into the Putnam County Fairgrounds in Greencastle, Monday, May 5.

The Kelly Miller Circus will be putting on two shows next Monday sponsored by the Greencastle Lions Club. The public is invited down to see the animals being unloaded and fed while the elephants help raise the "big top."

The Kelly Miller Circus was founded by Obert Miller and his two sons in Kansas in 1938, making this their 70th anniversary. The main attraction is their three Asian elephants, Lisa, Tracy and Becky. The big top tent itself weighs 7,297 lbs. and span 11,824 square feet.

The show will feature acts like an aerial trapeze, juggling, clowns, tigers, Eskimo dogs and horses alongside the elephants.

The animal unloading will begin around 7:30 a.m. with the tent being raised at 9 a.m. Tickets can be purchased in advance at North Salem State Bank, First Financial Bank, Comcast Office and Cinergy Metro Net for $9 and $5 for children. On the day of, tickets will raise to $12 and $6 for children at the Circus Box Office.

I would have been nice if the would have put what times the shows are. There is one at 4:30 pm and at 7:30 pm.
