(ran Seminole edition)
The circus is coming to Seminole High School's football field on Saturday. Bauder Elementary School will host the event.
The Flying High Circus, founded in 1947, features students from Florida State University who will walk the high wire, fly on the trapeze, and perform acrobatics, juggling, stunts and bike tricks.
The FSU students act as their own riggers, make their own costumes and, in the process, earn college physical education credits.
There will be two performances under the big top, one at 11 a.m., the second at 4 p.m. Each performance will last about two hours.
And, as at any circus, attendees can eat their fill of hot dogs, peanuts, popcorn, snow cones and more.
Tickets can be purchased ahead of time for $10 per adult and $5 per child. Ticket prices will rise to $12 and $7, respectively, the day of the circus.
Money raised at the event will benefit school programs, including teaching supplies, playground apparatus and technology equipment. For more information, call Bauder Elementary at 547-7829.
