The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus will be in Mena on Monday, March 20 at the Polk County Fairgrounds. There will be two performances, the first at 5 p.m. followed by another at 7:30.
Come see the lions, tigers, and horses, the high-flying aerialists, and several new acts inside the ring.
The public is invited to attend the tent raising at 9:30 on March 20 along with a free tour of the circus grounds, which includes meeting the animals, learning about their routine and care, and also the show’s daily operations.
Pre-sale tickets are available at all Union Bank locations and at First Financial Bank of Mena.
Pre-sale tickets are $13 for adults, and $8 for children ages 2-12 and for seniors 65-Plus.
Tickets can also be pre-ordered at cmcircus.com. Click here for the link for Tour Dates & Tickets.
Tickets the day of the Circus are $16 for adults, and $9 for children 2-12 and seniors 65-Plus at all locations. The box office opens an hour before each show. There is no charge for children under the age of 2.
Tickets are all general admission, so seating is first come, first served.
While waiting to get inside the big top, there are bouncy houses, a 22-foot slide, pony rides, face painting and a concession stand.
Cash is accepted directly at each attraction. Credit cards are only accepted at the box office and the concession stand.
