Lewis & Clark Circus coming to Union City
Posted: Thursday, October 4, 2012 5:00 pm
The excitement of the circus is coming to Union City at the Obion County Fairgrounds.
Lewis & Clark Circus, a one ring European-style circus under the Big Top featuring continuous action in the center ring, will have shows on Monday and Tuesday with showtimes daily at 4:30 and 7 p.m.
One of the featured acts will be performed by Jose Ayala. Ayala will stack round cylinders seven high and show his balancing skills as he stands on a platform on top of all of those cylinders. Residents who watched this year’s “America’s Got Talent” may have seen a young man try this act unsuccessfully. Ayala is the only performer in the United States that performs a seven high Rolla Bolla act successfully on a daily basis.
Families attending the show can expect to see Elizabeth Ayala perform high above the ground in her lyra act, Lewis & Clark’s version of the Fantastic Four will amaze audiences with juggling skills, acrobats, zany clowns, horses, camels and performing goats, plus much more circus excitement. The circus midway will be open prior to show time featuring pony and camel rides, concessions, a free petting zoo and much more.
