Hillsboro,Il--Melvino the Clown spent a day last week spreading the word that the Kelly Miller Circus will be in Hillsboro on Thursday, April 24, sponsored by the Hillsboro Sertoma Club.
The circus will perform two shows, at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. at the Hillsboro Sports Complex. Spectators are welcome to watch the "big top" tent rise at 9 a.m. that morning. Advance tickets are now available at The Journal-News, First Community Bank, Gianni's Pizza, National Bank, Security National Bank in Coffeen and Witt, and Dollar General in Hillsboro.
Founded in 1938 by Obert Miller and his sons, Kelly and Dores, the traditional tented circus features high wire and trapeze acts, acrobats, tiger acts, elephants, and of course, clowns.
