Carson and Barnes Circus,
one of the last of the great American traveling big top circuses, will perform two shows, at 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm, in Teague, Texas at B.T. Washington Park on Monday, March 26 to benefit the Teague Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are on sale now, please visit www.BIGTOPSHOW.COM
for ticketing information. Since 1937 the Carson and Barnes Circus has toured America
millions under the World’s Biggest Big Top tent. Barbara Miller-Byrd is the third generation owner of the circus that travels to over 200 towns each season. “For more than 75 years
our family has brought the excitement and magic of the circus to people in towns of all sizes,” said Byrd. In fact, most communities on Carson and Barnes’s 2012 tour have a population of less than 30,000. “There is no bigger entertainment opportunity, or better value for the dollar than this year’s show under the big top,” said Byrd. Ticket prices will range from $14 for adults and $6 for children 12 and under when purchased in advance online or from local Teague area ticket locations. Discount coupons for a savings of up to $4 on adult tickets are available locally and at WWW.BIGTOPSHOW.COM
