A cast of over one hundred performers and animals will delight and entertain you through seven performances at the Apple Blossom Mall on: SATURDAY, May 2nd 10 a.m., 5 p.m. & 8 p.m. SUNDAY, May 3rd 1:30 p.m. & 4:30 p.m. On the 121st anniversary of Cole Bros. Circus founder W.W. Cole’s first show business venture, “Cole’s Colossal Amusements,” Cole Brothers Circus, Inc. introduces The New Cole Bros. Circus. Cole Bros. purchased the assets of the Clyde Beatty Circus in 1956, and toured as Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus from 1957 through 2003. The “New” in The New Cole Bros. Circus signifies more than just a name change. One of the great strengths of a circus under the Big Top–the Real Circus, we say–is the proximity of the public to the performers. The audience is right there, part of the scenery and part of the action. Food and non-alcoholic drinks may be purchased from Circus vendors.
