FROM PHILADELPHIA---


Circus at the arboretum
On Saturday, Morris Arboretum launches Circus Week at its Garden Railway exhibit, with activities through July 5. The exhibit, opening at 10 a.m. daily, celebrates the first American circus held in Philadelphia in 1793. Families can see the Big Top and the circus trains on the railway and also learn the history of the circus.
Circus Week is part of the arboretum's Garden Railway exhibit American Roadside Attractions, on display through Labor Day. The theme is the diverse and eccentric architecture of the countryside, where visitors can see re-creations of favorite tourist attractions.
Garden Railway, which has an annual changing theme, is a miniature world set in a summer garden featuring historic buildings created entirely of natural material including leaves, bark, vines, and twigs. Logs and branches are used to create the exhibits' unique tunnels and overhead trestles.
