Rhonda Murphy of Chickamauga, Ga., Chattanooga Neighborhood Enterprise employee Carolyn Burke and Sarah Reynolds are the winners of three sets of circus tickets for a family of four for the Lewis & Clark Circus that is coming to the Tri-State Exhibition Center at Cleveland, Tn., on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Showtimes are Friday, Sept. 14, at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 15, at 1:30, 4:30 and 7:30 p.m., and Sunday, Sept. 16, at 1:30 and 4:30 p.m.
Lewis & Clark Circus is a one-ring, European-style circus under the Big Top featuring continuous action in the center ring.
Officials said, "Two of the featured acts will be performed by Jose and Elizabeth Ayala. Jose will stack round cylinders seven high and show his balancing skills as he stands on a platform on top of all of those cylinders . If you watched this years America's Got Talent, you may have seen a young man try this act and was not successful. Jose Ayala is the only performer in the United States that performs a seven high Rolla Bolla act successfully on a daily basis. Elizabeth Ayala will show her acrobat abilities high above the ground. The grace, skill, and beauty she shows is outstanding, but what will amaze audiences of all ages is that she does all of this hanging by her hair only.
"Plus families attending the show can expect to see; hi-flying trapeze artists, high wire artist, amazing acrobats, juggling, zany clowns, horses, camels, performing goats plus much more circus excitement. The circus midway will be open prior to show time featuring pony and camel rides, concessions, a free petting zoo and much more."
