Circus coming to Harford Thursday to benefit Level VFC

Public invited to watch elephants raise the big top

May 31, 2011

World-celebrated Kelly-Miller Circus brings thrills, chills and fabulous, affordable family fun to Harford County this Thursday to benefit of Level Volunteer Fire Company.

Tigers, elephants, camels, clowns, dogs, ponies, aerialists, acrobats and many more acts will take part in what sponsors say is "marvelous magic in America's one-ring wonder."

The local appearance of Kelly-Miller Circus is sponsored by the Ladino Sod Farm, home of the Legends of the Fog Haunted Attraction and will benefit Level Volunteer Fire Company's fire and injury prevention programs.

"Our programs include an annual fire prevention open house, station tours and the highly successful 'Play it Safe' Safety Camp held in July," Assistant Chief Rhonda Polk said.

The circus will be held Thursday only at the Legends of the Fog Show Grounds, 500 Carsins Run Road near Aldino. Showtimes are 4:30 and 7:30 pm. 

At 9 a.m. Thursday, the day the circus arrives, the public is invited at no charge to witness the elephant-powered raising of the big top, an old-fashioned circus tradition.

"This is an excellent opportunity for everyone to see a part of the circus many people don't have the opportunity to see," said Jason Gallion, president of Level VFC. "Guided tours are also available on circus morning." 

Advance discount tickets are available at the following locations: Aldino Sod Farm, 3603 Aldino Road; J&T Snowballs, 2427 Baldwin Mill Road; Back to the Racks Consignment Shop, 2210 Old Emmorton Road; and Havre de Grace Visitors Center, 450 Pennington Ave.
