QUINCY, ILL. -- If you're looking for something to do for Labor Day Monday, why not go under the big top?
The Carson and Barnes Circus will perform in Quincy Sunday and Monday, set up just behind the Quincy Mall. You can watch performances at 1:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. Advance tickets for adults are $12, kids ages 2-11 are $6. Tickets at the gate are $18 for adults and $10 for kids.
For 75 years, this family owned circus has toured the country putting on shows. Jugglers, acrobatic teams and dozens of animals are just the beginning. The circus comes to Quincy once every two years.
This year, part of the ticket sales goes to Quest stables, which is a horse therapy facility for children with disabilities.
The circus has a few more stops in the Tri-State area before heading out of town. It will stop in Beardstown Tuesday, in Jacksonville Wednesday, Pittsfield Thursday, and Bowling Green Friday
