Bring your friends and family out circus morning to watch as a familiar place in your town is transformed into a Circus City. Activity swirls around the grounds as animals are unloaded, the Big Top is erected, and rigging is prepared for performances later in the day.

Between 9:30 and 10 a.m., come watch the raising of the Big Top and then stay for the free tour.

This presentation offers a unique face-to-face opportunity for families, schools, and interested community members to meet and learn all about the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus family and includes a walking tour of the circus grounds.

Learn facts about the performers, the history of the show and the different species of animals in the circus family. In this presentation, they also will address topics such as hygiene, grooming and the veterinary care all of the animals receive.

On circus day, performers bring the magic of the circus to life in each 90-minute performance.

The favorite performing Jungle Cats, Soloman, Delilah & Francis, presented by Trey Key, will have you on the edge of your seats.

It is all accompanied by original music written by Matt Margucci from Los Angeles, Calif. For information, visit the Facebook page with videos, photos and comments from past sponsors and patrons.
