The Kelly Miller Bros. Circus, founded during the Depression, is marking another milestone this year as it celebrates its eightieth anniversary. Founded in 1938 by Obert Miller and his sons, Kelly and Dores, this traditional tented circus has seen the passing of the millennium and still offers the same great family entertainment it presented in its humble beginnings.
While the show in 1938 was little more than the Miller family, some ponies, and a couple of monkeys, they still moved about the country, as they do today, in trucks and went through the same routine each day of setting up and giving performances in a new town.
The all new 2018 season will feature a host of international circus stars from allover the world. Each morning the public gets an altogether different kind of show as the circus lot comes to life. Circus truck pulls into the lot in the early morning hours, stakes are driven and the giant Big Top rises into the air. Best of all, the public is welcomed to watch this spectacle free of charge. a knowledgeable circus veteran will be on hand to explain the action and answer questions about circus life.
The all new edition promises a more exciting and extravagant exhibition than ever. Everyone is invited to step back in time as the Kelly Miller Bros. Circus brings the history and tradition of the old fashioned circus to Parsons, WV on Friday, June 8, 2018 thanks to the Sponsorship of the Tucker County Fair Association. Performances will be at 5 and 7:30p.m.. at the City Parking lot infront of City Hall and the tent raising will begin at approximately 9 a.m. on Circus Day.
