Kansas Coliseum shows.

The show rolled into Wichita on Thursday night after making the long drive from Oklahoma. Today the Prop Dept will set-up for performances on Sat at 2:30 and 7:30, and on Sun at 1:30 and 5:30. Randy Peterson drove 700 miles from Wisconsin to versee the elephants in Kansas. Other Miller herd elephants are appearing in Illinois this weekend. The Wichita Eagle said this about the show today:

Three-ring circus at Coliseum this weekend

Elephants, performing ponies, horses and dogs will join clowns, flying trapeze artists and high-wire acrobats when the circus comes to town.

The Carson and Barnes 3 Ring Circus will perform at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and 1:30 and 5 p.m. Sunday at the Kansas Coliseum.

Based in Hugo, Okla., the Carson and Barnes circus has been performing for more than 70 years. This will be its first performance at the Coliseum.

Harry Dubsky, spokesman for the circus, is a fourth-generation member of his circus family.

"Our performers are multigenerational. We have many who are fourth- or fifth-generation circus performers," he said.

This year, 5-year-old Brandon Cavallini will perform on the flying trapeze.

"He climbs 35 feet in the air, flies on the trapeze and drops into the net," Dubsky said.

The circus usually performs under a tent the size of a football field, but as they enter the winter months, they will be performing indoors.

Tickets are $20.50 for adults and $8.50 for children under 12. Free admission tickets for children and two-for-one adult tickets are available at www.carsonbanescircus.com.
