The Kelly Miller Bros. Circus will perform in Pineville at 5 and 7:30 p.m. Monday, Oct. 15, at Canoe Camp Lane.

Founded during the Depression, the circus is marking another milestone this year as it celebrates its 80th 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 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 all over the world. This year's lineup includes an all-star group of performers and entertainers that include Rolla Bolla, Hula Hoops, Quick Change, Russian Swing and much more. Each morning the public gets an altogether different kind of show as the circus lot comes to life. Circus trucks pull onto the lot in the early morning hours, stakes are driven and the giant big top rises into the air. The public is welcomed to watch this entire spectacle free of charge. A knowledgeable circus veteran will be on hand to explain the action and answer questions about circus life.

This season, the Kelly Miller Bros. Circus will travel nearly 10,000 miles and give performances in more than 150 cities and towns as it winds across North America from April to October.

Thanks to the sponsoring of the Pineville Volunteer Fire Department, everyone is invited to come out and see the all new Kelly Miller Circus on Monday, Oct. 15. Located at Canoe Camp Lane, performances will be at 5 and 7:30 p.m., and the tent raising will begin about 9 a.m. on circus day.
