HOUSTON, MS - The annual Ag Days event will feature all the usual events like exhibits and children's activities, but organizers are bringing in a new feature event to provide entertainment for children of all ages.
The Lewis and Clark Circus will put up the big top behind the Chickasaw County Coliseum this year and the public is invited to come out and watch the circus.
"The closest this circus has ever come to us has been Oxford," said organizer Kathy Funderburk. "We're really proud to get them."
The circus will feature animal acts, high wire and trapeze artists and, of course, clowns.
Tickets are on sale now and those who buy in advance will receive a discount.
Pre-sold tickets are $10 for adults and come with two free children's tickets. Tickets bought at the door are $17 each and children's tickets will be $5 each.
"It's definitely the way to go to buy in advance," said Angie Abrams of the Chickasaw County Extension office.
The circus is just one more addition to Ag Days to make it an event for all ages.
"It has really grown," Funderburk said.
Ag Days will be held Oct. 25-27 with the circus bringing in the finale for two shows on Saturday.
