The big top will stop in Howard County next week, when the Piccadilly Circus brings its elephants, acrobats and other animal and human performers to the county fairgrounds in West Friendship.
The circus will run from April 11-15, with shows at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday; at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Saturday; and at 1, 3:30 and 6 p.m. on Sunday.
Discounted tickets are available online at TheFunCircus.com. Tickets will also be available at full price at the box office. The online prices are $30 for an adult general admission ticket (free for a child), and $38 for an adult ringside VIP ticket ($8 for a child).
The circus is advertising racing camels, dancing zebras and motorcycle daredevils, among other attractions. Anyone arriving before the show can take rides on camels, elephants and ponies, and go to a free petting zoo.
