When: Back to Calendar September 8, 2018 @ 4:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Loomis Bros. Circus – one of America’s last traditional circuses, returns to Sumter County with their all new 2018 Circus Is Alive! Tour at The Bushnell Branch of The Sumter Youth Center, located at 841 CR 48 East on September 8 and 9. There will be two performances on Saturday at 4:30 & 7:30 PM and two performances on Sunday at 1:00 and 5:00 PM. All performances benefit The Sumter Youth Center.
The Bushnell 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 sensational family entertainment featuring everything you would expect to see in a circus including elephants, tigers, acrobats, clowns and motorcycle daredevils.
“Loomis Bros. Circus is currently the only show touring the United States to still have a full live band and performing animals,” said producer Justin Loomis, who also serves as the show’s singing Ringmaster.
Full priced admission to Loomis Bros. Circus is $20 for adults and $8 for children ages 2-12. Coupons for “Free Kids Tickets” are available at many merchants throughout Sumter County. Tickets can be purchased at a discount in advance by calling the Youth Center at 352-568-8722 or with cash only at the circus box office on the day of show. All seating is general admission and doors open one hour prior to each scheduled showtime. Patrons are encouraged to arrive early for best seat selection.
