Activities will begin at 7:30 a.m., with the tent being raised at approximately 9:00 a.m. This highly acclaimed “traditional” circus, celebrating its 76th anniversary and sponsored by the Richfield Town Trust, will feature elephants, tigers, camels, llamas, zebras, ponies, dogs, clowns, jugglers, acrobats, aerialists as well as an international cast of circus stars and offers inexpensive, old-fashioned family fun. Attendees will even have the opportunity to ride one of the performing elephants!
