The Circus Comes to Town!

September 24, 2007

Albany - - If you're looking for some fun for the family, you may want to head under the big top.

Coles Circus kicked off its shows in South Georgia Monday.

Children got a chance to take pony rides and grown-ups and kids alike were treated to some amazing stunts while snacking on cotton candy, popcorn and snow cones.

One family came from Tifton to give their one year old a taste of the magic.  

"We saw the elephants on TV and she decided she needed to come see them. They looked like it would be a lot of fun. This is her first circus trip," says Shannon Hawsey.

If you missed the circus Monday. You've got two more opportunities. They will continue Tuesday at 4:30 PM and 7:30 PM outside of the Albany Mall.
