Single ring - ticket price $15. Two children under 14 free with paid adult with a voucher - which were in many local businesses. Seating first come first choice; doors open hour prior.
Treats were small servings: Popcorn, cotton candy $2, nachos $3, peanuts $1. Snow cones, hotdogs, and soda served - unsure of price.
Pony & elephant rides $5 - pictures an additional $5. Face painting $5 (same sponges used on all children). After the circus feed the elephants a bag of peanuts $1 - unsure if peanuts were extra.
Blow up plastic toys on sticks $5, bull whips $5 (necessity of selling these questionable), coloring books $1. Stuffed animals and light up toys - unsure of price.
Had some interesting acts: girl that hula-hooped, acrobatic cowboys, motorcycles, trained dog revue, single trapeze artist, girl who was on her way to being a contortionist, single seated equestrian stunt rider, camels. No clowns.
We weren't expecting that much for an inexpensive circus though.
The large cats looked well fed/groomed, but it was easy to see they did not care for their trainers. The elephants looked worn out and very sad - easy to tell their training had been rough.
Our biggest problem was the 7 year old girl who tottered on and off in high heels like her grown counterpart to hang from the top of the arena floor in an aerial routine. Her body wasn't ready for these types of stunts. It was obvious that it was a struggle for her to shimmy up and down the rope and loop her body for the act. Later we got to see the same little girl being swung around by an elephant's trunk. Given my husband and I were there with our two little girls so this just left us shaking our heads NOT amazed but this was a personal comfort level issue for us.
Intermission lasted for 1 hour (circus itself was only 1 1/2) until the lines for rides were completely gone.
The ring master spent the circus hawking the goods for sale.
