CULPEPPER & MERRIWEATHER NEWS



Carnival, circus coming to Craig, CO this week
By Craig Daily Press Staff Report
July 27, 2010

From high-rising thrill rides to high-flying trapeze acts, this week offers a variety of family fun.
The Fun Zones Amusements Carnival in Craig and the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus in both Craig and Hayden are features this week. And they are features Christina Oxley said are worth looking forward to.
“We’re really excited,” Oxley said. “People say that there’s nothing to do in Craig, and we hope this weekend is one of those times when people feel like there’s more to do than they have time for.”
Oxley is the executive director of the Craig Chamber of Commerce, which is hosting the carnival, and a member of Craig Lions Club, which is bringing the circus to Craig. The Hayden Chamber of Commerce is bringing the circus to Hayden.
The carnival runs from 6 to 11 p.m. Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sunday at the Moffat County Fairgrounds.
An unlimited pass, which includes two rides on the bungee trampoline, is $20 if purchased in advance at the Craig Chamber of Commerce, 360 E. Victory Way.
The unlimited pass at the gate is $22 without the bungee rides or $25 with the bungee rides. Punch cards are also available for limited riding.
The circus is offered at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Monday at Moffat County Fairgrounds and at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Aug. 3 at Dry Creek Park in Hayden.
Tickets for any of the circus performances are $9 for adults and $6 for children ages 2 to 12, if purchased in advance. There is no cost for children younger than age 2. Prices on the day of the show will increase to $12 for adults and $7 for children.
Advance tickets for the Craig show are available at the Craig Chamber. Advance tickets for the Hayden show are on sale at Hayden Mat and Frame, the Bear River Co-op, the Hayden Public Library, the Hiway Bar and from Hayden Chamber board members.
Additionally, Culpepper & Merriweather will offer tours before the shows, welcoming community members to observe the tent setup and to receive a free tour, where attendees can meet performers face-to-face and learn about the care of circus animals. These tours are offered in Craig Monday at 9:30 a.m. and in Hayden Aug. 3 at 10 a.m.
For more information about the carnival or circus, call the Craig Chamber of Commerce at 824-5689.
