The Walker Bros. Circus is coming back to town this weekend in East Franklin Township.
Set to entertain families during three show times Saturday (2, 4:30 and 7PM), the circus was at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds in Brookville last night and Meadville Thursday. After the circus leaves Armstrong County, it will travel south to Washington County, Pa.
The 2012 tour – entitled ‘Circus, Circus and more CIRCUS’ promises to “dazzle and delight adults and children of all ages.”
Clowns, acrobats and tamed animals are all recruited by John Walker, Jr. and life partner Catia Meluzzi – both of whom grew up in the circus business: Walker as an exotic animal trainer and Meluzzi as a member of the Zacchini Family’s ‘human cannonball.’
Performers have traveled across the world for more than 20 years entertaining local residents.
