The circus is coming to town! Well, to Esparto, that is.

Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, a one-ring, big-top circus, has scheduled two performances at 5 and 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 15, on the grounds of Esparto Elementary School, 17120 Omega St.

The fun starts earlier in the day, however, as the big top is raised between 9:30 and 10 a.m. and the animals are unloaded. A free walking tour of the circus operations will be offered at 9:30 a.m. Guides will discuss the veterinary care and grooming that the animals receive, and share fun facts about the performers and the history of the show, in its 29th year.

The midway — featuring pony rides, bounce houses and concessions — and box office open at 4 p.m.

The circus lineup includes Miss Simone and her amazing single trapeze; Miss Paulina’s proud prancing ponies; The Arlise Troupe on their wild and crazy unicycles; Natalie’s American Eskimo Escapades; The Ayalas, with unforgettable foot juggling; and jungle cats Solomon, Delilah and Francis.

C&M Circus has been featured on the A&E special “Under the Big Top” and most recently on a Nickelodeon special, “On the Road with Circus Kids.”

Advance tickets are $10 general, $6 for children ages 2-12 and free for kids under 2. They’re available at the Yolo County Fair office, Winters Chamber of Commerce, Esparto Chamber of Commerce and Pacific Ace Hardware in Esparto. Tickets at the gate will be $13 for adults and $7 for children.
