The Kelly Miller Circus is set to return to Lyons for two days of performances scheduled for Tuesday, September 2nd and Wednesday, September 3rd at Smith Park.
Famously known as “America’s One Ring Wonder,” the Kelly Miller Circus is one of the few remaining traveling circuses in the United States. Established in 1938, the circus will celebrate their 76th year of performances.
Mayor Getty, who worked diligently to bring the circus to Lyons for the first time in 2012, said he wants to ensure that the Kelly Miller Circus returns to Lyons every two years.
“The Circus is a memorable event which brings families and our community together,” said Mayor Getty. “I believe it is important that we continue to establish these traditions in our town.”
According to circus organizers, they recently decided to add the second day due to the high volume of first day ticket sales.
The Village of Lyons plans to sponsor the event and allocate all ticket proceeds towards the Parks and Recreation department.
Circus goers can look forward to seeing performances such as, The Sensational Trapeze Artist, Death-Defying Performers on a 40 foot High Wire, Balancing Acts, Fire Eaters, Hilarious Clowns, Jugglers, Tiger Tamers, Elephants, Llamas and more.
