Circus likes CC venue just fine

January 25, 2008

Albany --  The Albany Civic Center has struggled to draw acts south Georgians want to see, but the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus appears to be a big hit.

Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey announced today they'll add a fifth performance to their Albany stop.  Another show has been added at 10:30 Friday morning February eighth. 

Ernestine Beal stopped Friday morning to buy tickets for her eight year old grandson and said shows are filling up fast.  "I had a choice, but there were a lot of seats that were taken, but I did get the seating arrangement I wanted," said Beal.

The Boom-A-Ring show promises tigers, acrobats, and Asian elephants that will thrill viewers.  The circus will be in town February eighth through the tenth.
