"Circus City" is coming to Michiana! When Carson & Barnes sets up circus morning, it is circus history and magic, transforming the show grounds into "Circus City USA". The general public is invited free, and early birds can watch, as the first units of the caravan begin arriving about an hour after dawn, Tuesday morning, August 3rd across from Borkholder Dutch Village, in Nappanee.
Over two dozen types of exotic and domestic animals, featuring a large traveling zoo, are unloaded, fed, and watered, and made available for viewing. Adding to the excitement, is the final and most popular experience of all, as humans, elephants, and technology work side-by-side to erect America's most spectacular and largest circus Big Top.
Dutch Kitchen will be offering up a breakfast special for those watching the circus magic. Junior Anderson, owner of Dutch Kitchen, is excited about the circus coming, and has agreed to offer breakfast specials the morning the circus arrives. Dutch Kitchen will also be open the evening of the circus, according to Anderson, offering a Chicken & Meatloaf buffet from 4 - 8 p.m. for just $9.95. The buffet includes dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy, chicken noodles, green beans, corn, salad bar, dessert bar, an even a drink!
The all new 74th edition of the Carson & Barnes Circus, bringing almost one hundred performers and animals to Borkholder Dutch Village, will put on two shows Tuesday: 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
According to sponsor and local promoter Ron Bedward, owner of Michiana Promotions, a portion of the proceeds of the circus will be used to help fund and promote Nappanee's Second Saturdays. Bedward also encourages circus goers to get their tickets in advance, because "folks can save alot of money!"
