Scottsbluff,NE--Early Friday morning a crew raised the big top tent at 900 Broadway Ave. in Scottsbluff for the Carson & Barnes Circus, America's largest traveling big top tent circus.

The Scottsbluff Fire Department's Local 1454 is sponsoring the event that will entertain kids at 2 and 5 p.m. today. "This is our way of raising funds, and then giving it back to the community," said Scottsbluff firefighter Parrish Abel.

Before the show, kids can interact with an assortment of exotic animals, including a Sicilian donkey, llamas, zebras, camels, pygmy goats and Katy, the pygmy hippo. But the stars of the show are undoubtedly the circus' two Asian elephants, Isa and Whimpy.

Ticket prices are $16 for an adult and $10 for a child at the door.
