Kids can ride on elephants one hour before each show, Loomis said. Food and drinks will also be available.

Additionally, three elephants and clowns from the show will appear at the Veterans Day parade 10 a.m. Nov. 10 on Main Street.


Loomis has continued a family tradition handed down from his father, Arnold. Since he was 7, Justin has been involved in the circus business. His father also helped start the Loomis Bros. Circus in 1997.

Out of 10 siblings, three have stayed with the business.

“At one point, they were all involved in the circus,” Loomis said, adding that the circus tours Florida, Alabama and Georgia.

“We feel more at home in smaller communities,” Loomis said. “That’s why I always look forward coming to Crestview.
