Ridgebury Township will play home to a circus for the first time this Independence Day, hosting the Lewis and Clark Circus July 4.
The circus tent will stop at the lawn across from the Ridgebury Volunteer Fire Company hall on Berwick Turnpike for two shows at 4 and 7 p.m., said fire company president Leland Jelliff. The circus will feature animals, acrobats and other performers, he said.
Circus officials contacted the department with an open date to fill, and members were immediately interested, Jelliff said. "We decided to give it a try," he said.
Advance tickets will cost $10 per adult, including two free tickets for children 14 and under with the purchase of an advance adult ticket. Advance tickets are available by contacting Jelliff at (570) 596-2839 or by leaving a message at the fire hall at (570) 596-2141. Tickets are also available through fire department members and at Judy's Country Store and Furman's Barbershop.
Tickets will be $15 for adults and $5 for children under 14 at the door.
