The circus comes to town

The Center Ring Circus came to town last week and put on a welcoming show for boys and girls alike.

Gio Gio (pronounced Joe Joe) the clown got the crowd energized when he balanced a bicycle and a few different ladders on his chin!

Alena, Center Ring Circus’ aerial acrobat, then wowed the crowd as she flew through the air performing her stunts.

Before, during, and after the show, guests were able to take pony rides, pet the various animals, meet with performers, purchase souvenirs and jump around in the bounce-house.

Under the direction of John Walker, Jr. and Catia Meluzzi, Center Ring Circus travels the country bringing the circus to small town America. For over 20 years, the couple has worked to put a small on the face of everyone who attends the circus.

Although the circus was only in town for two days, those who got a chance to be part of the fun truly enjoyed it.
