Over the weekend I found out that the L.E. Barnes and Bailey Brothers circus is coming to town this week. I've checked Google and I have searched for a website but I can't find much about them. Anyone know of a website or have information about this show? Thank you.

The show belongs to John(Golpher) Davenport. He is based in Texas, but rarerly closes his show. Is he playing abuilding or under canvas?

Not sure if it is under a canvas or in a building. The information I got was from our local paper and posters I've seen at area businesses. They state the L.E. Barnes and Bailey Circus and that the performances will be at the fairgrounds and gives performance times. In the past circuses have set up in the hockey arena on the grounds. But there would definitely be room at the grounds for a big top as well. There is also an arena now with seating for a few hundred to a thousand so it could be in that building too. So to answer your question I'm not sure.

I haven't heard anything about Golpher in years, wasn't even sure if he was still in the game... i might have to get over there and see him.
