CARSON & BARNES IN TALLAHASSEE


from Tallahassee Examiner
Carson & Barnes Circus comes to Tallahassee May 7 - 9
The Carson & Barnes Circus takes place at the North Florida Fairgrounds Mother's Day Weekend. Celebrating a 70-year tradition as a traveling circus, Carson & Barnes sets up its big tent in the Big Bend May 7-9 at the North Florida Fairgrounds.
The Carson & Barnes Circus can trace its history through four generations of family ownership. Proving that size does matter, their big top makes a total "footprint" of 500 feet by 400 feet, allowing an unobstructed view, they promise, for up to 2200 people to witness the animal acts, trapeze artists, clowns and contortionists.
Carson & Barnes also boasts the second largest herd of elephants in the United States and proudly supports, they state emphatically, the Endangered Ark Foundation for the preservation of the extremely endangered Asian elephant and other animals. Proud of their large and varied educational exhibit of over two dozen types of domestic and exotic animals, the circus opens as a zoo on circus morning. It’s free to everyone who wants to watch the animals arrive, watered, fed and cared for.
Employing performers from around the world, Carson & Barnes announces that their featured artist for 2010 is the world-renowned "King of Circus Comedy," Alex, who will entertain with hilarious high-bounding feats on the trampoline.
Click here for a map to the fairground. Shows take place at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday. For more information, visit the Carson & Barnes website or call 580-326-2233.
