[August 24, 2016]   LINCOLN - The day begins as the sun peeks over the horizon. Trucks rumble into town headed for Lincoln, IL show grounds near Bonanza, and people begin gathering, drawn to the commotion. Animals and equipment begin pouring from the vehicles while people rush about preparing for another day at the Kelly Miller Circus.

As if it has been choreographed, everyone steps in time and knows exactly what to do. Before your eyes, a whole magical world rises up and in just a couple short hours a vacant lot had been transformed into a wondrous sight of brightly colored tents, animals from far way lands, and amazing equipment from which daring people will fly through the air to delight and fascinate you.

Take the day and enjoy with your family the whole Circus experience on Tuesday, October 4, 2016. Set up begins at approximately 9:00 a.m., followed by two magical performances at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
