Kelleys Island, OH. 40 miles. Grass. Possibility of rain. The thing about an island is, you have to cross the water to get there. John Ringling North II's Kelly Miller Circus loaded on to ferries last night for the annual trip over the waters of Lake Erie to Kelleys Island, Ohio. Kelley's Island is a "destination" one of those place the show builds a route around visiting. Even after six or seven years the entire community turns out for the two day stand. It's a place where the circus is still something special. And there's a lesson in that for hosts everywhere -- because handled correctly the circus can indeed be something special anywhere.
