Circus In Town To Amaze And Entertain

AUBURN HILLS (WWJ) – The Ringling Brothers Barnum & Bailey Circus is celebrating its 200th year of daring stunts and animal acts.

To the shouts of “Come one, come all step right up, folks don’t be shy, we’ve got sights your eyes have never seen …”

WWJ’s Mike Campbell reports that the circus appears as popular and spectacular as ever, packing three shows at the Palace of Auburn Hills on Saturday, and continuing through Sunday.

The Circus is celebrating its 200th year — with the same great animal acts, and high-wire and death-defying stunts … plus a lot of electronics, lighting and some pyrotechnics … And the music is still ‘live.’

Still a chance to catch the circus this year, with 2 shows on Sunday.

A few protesters waved signs alleging animal cruelty by the circus as show-goers entered the Palace parking lot.
