Lions Club bringing circus to Clyde, Ohio on Aug. 1
BY JEANETTE LIEBOLD-RICKER • July 24, 2010
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls -- step right up!

The circus is coming to Clyde on Aug. 1.

The Kelly Miller Circus, one of only a few traveling shows still in existence, will have two performances, one at 2 p.m. and a second one at 5 p.m. in the south lot of the Clyde Eagles, 1120 S. Main St.

The circus is being brought to town by the Clyde Lions Club.

Circus day begins at 7:30 a.m. when everyone is invited to come and watch the animals being unloaded.

The elephants will begin raising the Big Top at 9 a.m. Guides will be furnished for school groups or others attending.

These are free attractions offered by Kelly Miller Circus for their new 2010 show.

The personnel in the animal department will be glad to answer any questions about the circus animals on display. If one has ever wondered what a camel's foot looks like or how much an elephant eats, they can come see for themselves.
Everyone steps in time and knows exactly what to do. A whole magical world rises up and in just a couple of hours, the vacant lot will be transformed into a field of brightly colored tents, animals from far away lands and aerial equipment for the high wire acts.

According to advertisements, Kelly Brothers has many new acts and entertainers to amaze and amuse their audience. More information can be found at kellymillercircus.com.
Advance tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children younger than 12 and can be purchased from any Lions Club member, First Financial Bank, Clyde Pro-Hardware, Old Fort Bank, Clyde branch, the Sandusky County Chamber of Commerce, the Clyde Findlay Area Credit Union or 1st Place Awards. Miller's Super Valu will have tickets for sale at 505 W. Maple St.
Tickets purchased at the gate are $14 for adults and $7 for children younger than age 12.
According to information provided, the Lions Club will receive a greater share of advance ticket sales than from tickets sold on circus day. This is the first fundraiser for the organization, which was organized April 8, 2010. It is a community service club, dedicated to working for the community. Meetings are at noon and 7 p.m. on the first Wednesday of the month at Arby's in Clyde. David Woodruff is the president.
