The circus will be coming to Hamlet in just over two weeks.
The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus says they will be setting up at the Starke County Fairgrounds on June 6th. Performances will run that day at 5:00 and 7:30 p.m.
This is the 31st edition of the show. There is more to the circus festivities than the 90 minute performances, according to a press release.
The morning of the circus, animals used in the show are unloaded, the big top tent is set-up, and a tour of the site is offered. That tour will allow families an opportunity to meet the performers and learn about the animals and their caretaking.
Several performers, including: Trapeze Artists, Unicyclists, and Tight Rope Walkers are included in the lineup.
