Circus set to be in Lindsay

Come one! Come all! The Carson and Barnes Circus family is proud to present the World Debut of CircusSaurus – complete with dinosaurs, and even a unicorn – in Lindsay on Mon., Sept. 16, according to Violet Henderson.

Two performances will be held, at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., in Lindsay’s Shady Grove Park. 

Kids and adults, alike, will also love to attend while the elephants have their “spa day” at 3:00 p.m. that same afternoon.

When Carson & Barnes sets up circus morning, it is circus history and magic, transforming the show grounds into “Circus City USA”. The general public is invited FREE of charge, and school field trips are welcome about 9:00 a.m. circus morning to watch as the first units of the caravan begin arriving.

There will be exotic and domestic animals, featuring a traveling zoo, being unloaded, fed and watered, and made available for viewing.

Adding to the excitement, is the most popular experience of all, as humans and technology work side by side to erect America’s most spectacular and largest circus Big Top.

With the dawn of a new day comes a new era under the Big Top, and those that were once extinct will re-emerge again – right before visitors’ very eyes! The Big Top will be transformed into a time machine, and guests will embark on an adventure of a lifetime. 

Guests will be amazed as dinosaurs shake the very ground under their feet. The trio of Deinoychus – Rumble, Rascal, and Rebel – will transport guests back in time to show why dinosaurs ruled the land.

The extinct giants of the past and the endangered Asian elephants of today clash under the Big Top in this high-thrilling adventure. Performers are from around the world, including the United States, Mexico, Peru, Chile, Argentina, Russia, and Italy. 

Acts consist of aerial trapeze, acrobatic teams, jugglers and clowns, along with performing elephants, dinosaurs, plus a unicorn!

The circus is brought to Lindsay by the Lindsay Chamber of Commerce. Those who have questions may contact Violet Henderson, Chamber manager, at 405-756-4312.

 

In Maysville

Wiley Post festival set for Saturday

Fun, food, and festivities are all headed to downtown Maysville this weekend, Sat., Sept. 14, for the annual Wiley Post Festival, according to Janet Dinwiddie, Librarian of the Maysville Public Library. 

The popular event is sponsored yearly by the Maysville Public Library, and features craft vendors, food vendors, music and fun all day on Williams Street in downtown Maysville.

There will be a welcome at 10:00 a.m. At 10:30 a.m., the crowning of the fifth annual Wiley Post Royalty will be held, and the parade will be held at 11:00 a.m.

“We still have vendor/booth space available. Come join the fun!” Ms. Dinwiddie added.

The Wiley Post Festival gets its name from famous Maysville native, Wiley Post, who was the first pilot to fly solo around the world, discovered the jet stream, and was the pilot for famed humorist and fellow Oklahoman, Will Rogers.

Those who have questions, or who would like to rent vendor/booth space, may contact Ms. Dinwiddie at 405-867-4748.

This Friday is Friday the 13th!

If you’re a superstitious person, Friday the 13th is considered an unlucky day. 

Friday the 13th happens at least once every year, but CAN occur up to three times in the same year. 

The fear of the number 13 has a scientific name: triscaidekaphobia.

An estimated 17 to 21 MILLION people in the United States are bothered by this day, which makes it the most feared day and date in history. Some people even avoid their normal routines on Friday the 13th. 

No matter what your feelings are about Friday the 13th, your friends at the Shopper News Note hope you have a healthy, safe, and prosperous one!

Personally identifiable information shall be collected and maintained in a confidential manner in carrying out the following activities:
