CRESTVIEW — Loomis Bros. Circus - America’s last real 3-ring circus, will be making their annual return to Crestview’s Old Spanish Trail Park, Nov. 8-11.

Shows will take place on Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m. only. The circus will perform in the park’s covered theater pavilion located on Stillwell Blvd, one block off N Ferdon Blvd. (Highway 85).

The annual fundraising event is once again sponsored by the Crestview Historic Preservation Board, who receive a portion of each ticket sold. 

The Florida based Loomis Bros. Circus has been keeping the circus tradition alive for over twenty years, and this year’s show promises to be bigger and better than ever with a world-class cast of both human and animal performers assembled from all corners of the globe. 

Presented in a traditional fashion, the show is over ninety-minutes of family fun featuring three rings of everything you would expect to see in a circus including elephants, tigers, acrobats, clowns, and motorcycle daredevils. This year the circus is excited to feature “Magical Quick Change”, as seen on NBC television’s summer talent series, performed by the amazing Matagirov Duo who come to us all the way from Moscow, Russia. 

“Loomis Bros. Circus is currently the only show touring the United States to still have a full live band, animals, and three rings.” said producer Justin Loomis, who also serves as the show’s singing Ringmaster. 

“The circus is deep seeded in American history and is as much of an American tradition as baseball and apple pie,” Loomis said. “Every child deserves a chance to see the circus! It’s a truly magical place where you can get lost just for a little while and forget about your troubles, a place where even the adults get to feel like a kid again! Don’t miss what could be your last chance to see this living treasure known as circus.” 

Admission to the circus is $20 for adults and $8 for children ages 2-12. Coupons for “Free Kids Tickets” are available at merchants throughout Okaloosa County. There are also a limited number of discounted $10 adult tickets, which include free child’s admission, available for purchase in advance only at retail locations in the area by calling the event’s sponsor at (850) 537-5714 or online by visiting the show’s website at Full priced tickets will be available on the day of show at the circus box office or online.
