By News-Herald staff
The Kiwanis Club of West Geauga announced the Kelly Miller Circus will have two performances — 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. — on July 18, in the West Geauga High School parking lot.
It is one of the few traveling circuses still in existence and is the same circus that has visited the area in the past but with a variety of new performers and performances, according to a news release from the Kiwanis Club.
At 8 a.m. July 18, there will be a free viewing and guided tour of the circus as it sets up; unloading the equipment and the animals, and erecting the Big Top about 9 a.m. with the help of an elephant.
The high school is located at 13401 Chillicothe Road in Chester Township.
Ticket prices for the performances are, in advance: $10 for adults and $6 for children younger than 12; and at the gate, $15 for adults and $7 for children younger than 12. Advance tickets are available at Discount Drug Mart in Chester and Bainbridge townships, Highland Heights and Mentor; and 10 West Salon in Chagrin Falls.
This circus is sponsored by the West Geauga Kiwanis as a community event and fundraiser. The proceeds to the Kiwanis is returned to the community through our many projects including Concerts in the Park, support of the Clay Eddy Fields, Science Fair, 4th of July Parade, Scholarships and many school and Metzenbaum activities, according to the news release.
