The Carson & Barnes Circus, no stranger to La Junta, was the first big event for the newly rehabilitated Colorado Goal Ranch. The tent was visible from the crest of the hill coming from North La Junta.
The La Junta Chamber of Commerce hosted the event, which drew customers from the surrounding area. Greeting circus goers at the gate were Colorado Goal Ranch Manager Jerry Phillips, Chamber President Jennifer Justice, Sheila LeRoy and Glenn Parker.
Traveling into the grounds, one met Airika White; her position with the circus, school teacher. Her job is to tell the children who come to the petting zoo about the animals. There are African goats, llamas and other small animals available to exchange a morsel of food for a pat on the head from a small hand.
With White was animal caretaker Carlos Parra. Rides were available on an elephant or a camel. One of the spotted horses was running free in a pasture with her small dark colt.
Spectators coming out of the tent at intermission said it was a wonderful show. The sounds from the tent reverberated in the still prairie air.
