Circus is coming to town

Wednesday, March 28, 2012

Elephants are among the animals preparing for the circus tonight at the Brazil National Guard Armory. The circus will perform tonight at 4:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m. [Order this photo]
Animals are lining up near State Road 59 today -- and not the usual cows and horses that are often seen in the area.

The Brazil National Guard Armory is hosting the Circus Pages, out of Florida, tonight at 4:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m., for the ninth year in a row.

The circus will have animals including: Elephants, rare white tigers, camels, acrobatic dogs, liberty ponies, horses and rare white lions.

The circus will have many acts including: Aerial acts, juggling acts, clown acts and The Globe of Death, a show packed full of gravity-breaking stunts.

Elephant rides will be available during intermission and at the end of the show. Pony rides will be available before each performance and during intermission. Camel rides will also be available before the show, depending on the space available.

Tickets cost $15 per person. Two children 14-under can get in for free with an adult. For more than two children per adult, cost is $2 for each additional child.

I've researched the TIMES and this is the first I've heard of this. No advance notice is not good. I'd love to go, although I doubt I can make it due to previous plans.

Who is sponsoring this?

Agree totally with My Dime... Who on earth plans this stuff and doesn't let the paper know till the day of the show????????? I would have nbeen glad to take the kids but previous plans make it to where they will not be able to go. Just another thing in this town that planning and communications don't work together. Some things will never change...

Yes, we apologize for not covering this sooner. However, we only found out about it today. We hope everyone who wants to attend will be able to.

tfry: the ads were in all the local stores, plus you never go to court house or city hall checking on local permits?

My daughter would have loved to see this. How about some advance warning next year?

When you attend, support or promote a circus that employs animal acts, you are condoning animal cruelty and abuse. The abuse, exploitation and cruelty animals suffer in circuses and traveling shows are horrific and heartbreaking. If you respect animals and care about their welfare, please do not attend circuses that employ animals or promote this despicable business. For the few minutes you see animals "performing" ridiculous "stunts" they suffer a lifetime of inhumane confinement, abuse and cruelty. Visit Break The Chain http://breakthechainus.com/ to learn more about the campaign to bring an end to circus animal suffering in the USA, and how you can support The Traveling Exotic Animal Protection Act, H.R. 3359, a bill that is extremely vital to the lives of these animals.
