The Carson & Barnes Circus was at the Jackson County Expo Center on Monday. The circus was sponsored by the Blair Class of 2017.

Aside from all of the fun held inside the big top, spectators got a chance to see the elephants receive a full “Spa Treatment” from head to toe with the help of local hero firefighters. Local clown celebrity, Lil’ Red The Clown was also seen riding an elephant at the circus.

The all-new 79th edition of the Carson & Barnes Circus also featured a giant menagerie of exotic animals from around the world, which could be seen free of charge before each scheduled performance. Elephant and pony rides were also available.
