Thanks to the sponsorship of the Wellington Area Chamber of Commerce, Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, America’s favorite big top circus, is coming to Wellington on Wednesday, July 22, at the empty lot on the east side of 6th Street at Grant Ave., with two scheduled performances at 5 and 7:30 p.m.
Now in its 30th edition, C&M Circus has become internationally known for quality family entertainment.
Between 9:30 and 10 a.m. on July 22, come watch the raising of the big top, then stay for the free tour. This presentation offers a unique face-to-face opportunity for families, schools and interested community members to meet and learn all about the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus family and includes a walking tour of the circus grounds. Animal handlers will also address topics such as hygiene, grooming and the veterinary care the animals receive.
On circus day, the performers bring the magic of the circus to life in each 90-minute performance. This year’s lineup includes an all-star group of performers and entertainers that include Miss Simone and her breath taking single trapeze, Miss Paulina’s proud “Big & Little” prancing ponies, The Arlise Troupe on their wild and crazy unicycles, Natalie’s American Eskimo Escapades, Miss Georgia displaying flexibility to the extreme and, for the first time, the Wheel of Destiny & Tight Rope by The Los Moralitos. Last but not least are the popular performing jungle cats — Soloman, Delilah & Francis. The midway, featuring pony rides, moonbounce and concession stands, opens at 4 p.m.
