5-ring circus coming to Storm Lake

Tuesday, February 18, 2003

The Storm Lake Chamber of Commerce is hosting an appearance by the highly acclaimed Carson and Barnes Five-Ring Circus on Wednesday, May 21. Performances are scheduled for 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.

Carson and Barnes Circus is under the "Biggest Big Top on Earth" and features a herd of performing elephants, including "Baby Jennie," a "precocious, performing pachyderm." There are performers from around the globe, rings of horses and ponies, and, at no extra charge, a traveling zoo featuring many exotic animals. The Chamber receives a larger portion of proceeds from advance sales and you save 30 percent as well by purchasing tickets before show day. Ticket outlets will be established in the near future. As with any major project, there are opportunities to get involved. The chamber plans to assemble a small committee to spearhead the effort and welcomes volunteers. Call the Chamber if you're willing to help - done by May 22.
