The Carson & Barnes Circus will be making a trip to Huntington next week on Wednesday, August 1. The circus will move into Huntington around 6 a.m. and will begin to set up their “circus city” shortly after. This year’s circus is being organized by the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce with MarkleBank as the corporate sponsor.

Circus personnel stated that our first show begins around 7 a.m. when the elephants begin to erect the tent and the circus city begins to take shape. They went on to state that people showing up for setup will be able take tours, hear lectures about the circus and the circus animals, watch the tent go up, ask questions of the circus employees and visit the animals close up. The circus always offers this time to each community and for every show.

This is a great time for parents, grandparents and especially the children to see a real circus come to life before your very eyes.
