Carson & Barnes Circus the Biggest of the Big Top shows brings its all-new show for 2012 to Panhandle-South Plains Fairgrounds in Lubbock Monday and Tuesday, April 30 and May 1. Tickets are now on sale locally and online at BigTopShow.com. A portion of sales will benefit the Endangered Ark Foundation.


Celebrating its 76th year the Carson & Barnes Circus has been traveling the nation since 1937. While the show has changed over the decades, what remains is a solid two-hour show that features classic circus acts, daring high-wire feats and the antics of dozens of clowns. But aside from the clowns, the prancing horses and high-IQ dogs, the biggest stars of the show are the elephants.

Carson & Barnes Circus has for many years operated one of the most successful breeding programs for the endangered Asian elephant at a massive facility in southeastern Oklahoma at Hugo. D.R. and Isla Miller, founders of Carson & Barnes, dedicated much of their lives to preserving the vanishing Asian elephant breed. Now, their daughter and circus owner Barbara Miller-Byrd continues the tradition.

Advance tickets are available now locally, and online at BigTopShow.com. Prices range from $16 Adult, $8 Child at the gate on the day of the performance to as little as $10 Adult, $6 Child when purchased in advance using a discount coupon. Coupons are available locally or can be downloaded from BigTopShow.com or by visiting www.Facebook.com/CarsonBarnesCircus.
