Last time i saw them was in Bullhead City, Az., and spend a morning watching them work the elephants during setting up the tent. Fasinating ! Well worth watching. The show itself was everything you look forward to seeing in a circus. Dont miss an opportunity to see this circus.

They are in Florida at the present time. 4-28, Lake City, 4-29, Ocala, 4-30 Springhill, 5-1, Daytona, 5-2 Geen Cove Springs, 5-3 Callahan.
There will be plenty of circus fans visiting in Springhill, including myself.

They played the Hernando County Fairgrounds, in Brooksville, yesterday, for the Springhill Kiwanis Club. I caught the first show, which was nearly full and they had a full house, for the evening. Excellent show, and a well rounded performance.
They play Daytona today, followed by three more days in Florida, then into Ga., followed by S.C., N.C. Va. and Maryland.
If they get close to your area, it would be well worth your time, to pay them a visit.
By the way, after going as far north as, New York State, they head west and are in the San Fransico area in Oct. hat

Darn. Looks like they are bypassing the Bluegrass state yet another season. Oh well, maybe next year.

Circus Pages has already been through Mid and Northern Indiana. I think they work their way into Michigan very soon.

Carson and Barnes is a Top Notch Show, and the best sights are those related to the set-up. They still use elephants to set the side and top poles, the children love it!

I'm impressed with the way Geary Byrd has streamlined their footprint without losing any of the real feel of a large circus. There is nothing like being on the lot and watching all the activity.
They have really changed their route and are showing in places they have not visited for a long time. A lot of new territory too.

See ya down tha road!
