Star Staff Reports

american-legion-logoThe American Legion Fair Committee, Inc. announced today that instead of having a carnival this year, they will bring a circus.

The Carson & Barnes Circus will perform six shows at the Memphis International Raceway in Millington from Friday, Sept.30 through Sunday, Oct. 2.

The 80-year-old traveling circus has complete series of circus acts. The 2-hour presentation includes elephants, high wire and trapeze acts and other dare devils to thrill you and chill you. This all takes place under their giant big top.

“A circus is great, wholesome family entertainment,” Lee Buchschacher, president and chairman of the Legion Fair said. “We are excited about having them help us to raise money for our local veterans including the West Tennessee Veterans home.”

The show times are: Friday night at 7:30 p.m.; Saturday at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.; and Sunday 1:30 and 4:30 p.m. Ticket prices at the gate are $16 for adults and $10 for children under 12. However, reduced price advance tickets are available from the American Legion. For more information call (901) 230-3870.
