Once again this year the Kelly Miller Circus will be held on the grounds of the Avon Knights of Columbus located at 1783 Moore Rd. next to in Avon.
Acts including tigers, elephants, trapeze artists, clowns and much more will perform on Sunday, Aug. 5. At 9 a.m. Sunday, be on hand for the raising of the circus tents using elephant power. The public is welcome to watch.
A portion of the proceeds raised from the circus will benefit the The Knights plan on using the money to help support the Knights of Columbus Wrestling Tournament in Avon Lake and the Senior Citizen Dinner held at the Knights of Columbus Hall the first week of December. Any left over funds will be put toward student scholarships, John Wesner of the Avon Knights of Columbus, said.
“This is the second year for the circus in Avon hosted by the Knights," Wesner said. “The circus normally features acts with tigers, camels, elephants, trapeze/aerial acts and what I'll term a human flame thrower.”
And of course a circus is not a circus unless there are clown acts and they will be on hand as well. Camel rides and pony rides will also be available for a fee.
Show times are 2 p.m .and 5 p.m. Cost is $10 for adults; $6 for children under 12 (pre-circus) and $15 for adults, $7 for children (day of circus).
