I went to the Kelly Miller Circus a few days ago on June 19th, the first circus I ever went to! It was a fundraiser for our volunteer fire company. They had the circus at Jacktown Grove.
I was able to ride a camel and an elephant at the circus. I never rode an animal before. The elephant's name was Lisa. She was 34 years old, one year old than my mommy. I rode the elephant first. The camel's name was Humpty-Dumpty and he was 10 years old, almost the same age as me.
I also ate a caramel apple, a blue raspberry sno-cone, pink cotton candy, and a bag of peanuts at the circus!
I was able to watch the two circus clowns and every single thing there! There were trained pirate dogs, trapeze artists, tigers, camels, elephants, a zebra, jugglers, gauchos, pirate acrobats, a mermaid, and a little kid acrobat dressed as a parrot.
The lady in the picture above was named Miss Rebecca. She was in the movie "Water for Elephants".
I even got an elephant balloon there and I got to meet the ringmaster and take a photo with him!
