Thanks to the sponsorship of Blanco Lions Club, Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus is coming to Blanco on March 7, 2008, at Yett Park, with two scheduled performances at 5:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. In its 21st season, C&M Circus has become internationally known for quality family entertainment. This authentic One-Ring, Big Top Circus has been featured on National Geographic’s Explorer TV series, Entertainment Tonight, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, Arizona Highways Magazine. It has also been featured on the A&E Special: Under the Big Top and most recently, On the Road with Circus Kids, a Nickelodeon special featured on the Nick News Program.
This year the circus is proud to present Skeeter as the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus Advance Clown. Skeeter will be in town on February 20. She might be seen in stores, walking down Main Street, or handing out the official 2008 Culpepper & Merriweather Circus Coloring Contest sheets.
Skeeter is a graduate of the Ringling Clown College and has spent much of the last 19 years traveling around the country – clowning around.
Between 9:30 and 10:00 a.m. watch the raising of the Big Top, then stay for the free tour. This presentation offers a unique face-to-face opportunity for families, schools, and interested community members to meet and learn all about the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus family and includes a walking tour of the circus grounds.
