Carson & Barnes travels with its city-block long tent to some 200 other towns and cities each ten-month season. Emphasis is on bringing this type of top quality family entertainment to communities all over America. While other circuses have reduced their size and schedule, Carson & Barnes is still the only organization capable of moving a huge show of some 60 vehicles, including trucks, trailers and RV’s , to a new site nearly every day, seven days a week.
When Carson & Barnes sets up circus morning at Barrons Blvd. and Monument, it is circus history and magic recreated before your eyes. The general public is invited (free) and early birds can watch as the first units of the caravan begin arriving about an hour after dawn and continue to file in most of the morning. Some 25 species of exotic and domestic animals, featuring a large traveling zoo, are unloaded, fed and watered as soon as their huge transports pull onto the grounds. After hundreds of stakes, poles and several miles of cables and ropes are laid out and prepared, the crew and trained elephants push, pull and lift the almost 300-foot Big Top 40 feet into the air. Finally all of the circus equipment is put in place inside the big top along with seating for over 2,200 people.
