The Carden International Circus is bringing its Spectacular Circus to Owensboro on Wednesday. Led by Ringmaster “Lucky” Malatsi, the show features acrobats, aerialists, daredevils, clowns, and more from around the world.
The circus will take place at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Owensboro Sportscenter.
The production also includes horsemanship presentations from Cossack Riders. (Editor’s note: Organizers originally said the Carden herd of Asian elephants would perform. They have since announced the elephants will not be used due to a new Kentucky state law that makes it illegal for circuses to use endangered species, such as Asian elephants.)
Doors open one hour before show time for pre-show festivities, including performer meet-and-greets and interactive fun. General admission tickets are $10 for children 12 and under, and adult tickets are $25.
Tickets can be purchased online at spectacularcircus.com or one hour before show time at the Sportscenter. A limited number of $9.99 adult tickets are available online only.
