World's largest traditional circus coming to Fort Scott

Tuesday, September 13, 2011

Fort Scott Tribune

The 75th edition of the Carson & Barnes Circus will perform at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Sept. 20 at the Bourbon County Fairgrounds.

The Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring the event as a fundraiser to support many of its local community projects.
Carson & Barnes Circus travels with its city-block long tent to some 200 towns and cities each 10-month season.

Emphasis this year is on a new concept in circus presentation which blends over eight decades of circus tradition and family ownership with new acts and up-close audience viewing, achieving a new height in quality family entertainment, a news release said.
The general public is invited, and early birds on Sept. 20 can watch as the first units of the caravan begin arriving about an hour after dawn. More than 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, people, elephants and technology work side by side to put up the big top.
The performers are artists from around the world, including the United States, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Russia and Italy. Acts consist of aerial trapeze, high wire, motorcycle acrobatic teams, jugglers and clowns, along with performing elephants, camels, dogs and horses. Special for 2011 is the award-winning clown and world-renowned "King of Comedy" Alex, who will entertain guests with high bounding feats on the trampoline.
Advance general admission tickets are available at the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce and Country Cupboard at special discount prices for adults at $12 and children (2-11) at $6 before circus day. Tickets the day of the show are $18 for adults and $10 for children. Customers may also choose to go online and get tickets at full price at
www.carsonbarnescircus.com. Tickets can be upgraded to preferred seating for an additional charge online or at the box office.
