“This is fun, family entertainment with camel and pony rides and a petting area, also trinkets for souvenirs—really a neat deal for a circus under the big tent,” said Renate Ray of Ray’s Arena. “There will also be a huge slide for kids to play on.”

Camel and pony rides are offered in the hour preceding showtime so plan to arrive early.

Great news regarding this circus is that kids’ tickets are free and available to be printed online at http://lewis-clarkcircus.com/1228-2/.

Kids’ tickets are also available in many area businesses throughout Jemison, Thorsby and Clanton.

These tickets are for kids 14 and under. Adult tickets are $12 if purchased ahead of time online and will be $15 if purchased onsite at the box office.

According to the Lewis & Clark website, additional fees are listed below:

Food concessions: $2-$4

Novelties/toys: $3-$10

Activities/rides: $3-$6

It should be noted that no peanut products are used or sold in consideration for those with peanut allergies.
