CRESTVIEW — After a year hiatus, the Loomis Bros. Circuswill return to Crestview Nov. 9-11 at Old Spanish Trail Park. Performances are 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Nov. 9; 1, 4 and 7 p.m. Nov. 10; and 3 p.m. Nov. 11.

Advance tickets cost $10 at several locations including Cooney Island restaurant and Mickey's Grocery and Grill in Baker. Tickets cost $15 at the gate. Military members get a 10 percent discount. Proceeds go to the Main Street Crestview Association, event sponsor.


“It’s a more traditional family circus … there is going to be something for all ages,” owner and ringmaster Justin Loomis said. “We have elephants, tigers and horses that will perform tricks during each performance.” 

One elephant particularly should garner some attention.

“Okha is the only elephant in North America that can walk on a ball,” Loomis said.

Specialty acts include an Argentinean family who can juggle with their feet and a comedy act from Melvino the clown.
