The Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce says the Carson & Barnes Circus, “The Biggest of the Big Top shows,” will bring its all-new show for 2012 to the Atlantic Airport on Highland Road in Atlantic on Monday, June 11th.(photo courtesy Carson & Barnes)  One of the last of the great American traveling big top circuses, the Carson & Barnes performers will hold two shows, at 4:30 pm and 7:30 pm. Tickets are now on sale at the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce, 102 Chestnut Street and online at BigTopShow.com. A portion of sales will benefit the Atlantic Area Chamber of Commerce’s programs and events.

Celebrating its 76th year the Carson & Barnes Circus has been traveling the nation since 1937. While the show has changed over the decades, what remains is a solid two-hour show that features classic circus acts, daring high-wire feats and the antics of dozens of clowns. But aside from the clowns, the prancing horses and high-IQ dogs, the biggest stars of the show are the elephants. Advance tickets are available now at the Depot, 102 Chestnut Street, and online at BigTopShow.com.(photo by Carson & Barnes)
