WEST MILFORD, N.J. -- The Kelly Miller Circus, second largest big-top show in the country, will roll into town on Sunday, June 12, in the parking lot of the former A&P store in the Hewitt section of West Milford.
Everyone is invited to come out and watch the animals being unloaded and fed, and witness the raising of the giant big top. Activities will begin early circus morning and the tent will be raised approximately 9 a.m. Guides will be furnished for school groups and anyone attending.
Since 1938, Kelly Miller Circus has traveled annually throughout the United States and Canada. Members of the troupe arrive, set up, perform and break down all in one day. In order to provide ample time for children of all ages to enjoy the show and arrive home in timely fashion, two performances are planned -- at 2 and 5 p.m.
Advance tickets are $6 for children under 12 and $12 for adults. Buy them here, or at Greenwood Lake Airport, Oasis Diner and TJ's Pizzeria. Tickets purchased at the box office on the day of the event are $8 and $16, respectively.

The circus is presented by Shoprite of West Milford and hosted by the Highlands Economic Development and Tourism Corp.
