OPELIKA, AL (WTVM) - If you're looking for a fun, mind-blowing event, the circus has come to one East Alabama town.
The Cole Bros. raised the world's largest circus tent Wednesday morning at the USA Town Center in Opelika.
Performances were held Wednesday afternoon and evening. If you missed the excitement Wednesday there's still time to take the family.
The Cole Bros. Circus continues through Thursday with shows at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Central.
You can find free admission tickets for children and $5 adult tickets at local merchant locations or on the circus website colebroscircus.com.
According to its website, the Cole Bros. Circus remains the only circus to have survived a century, still appearing much as it did more than 100 years ago under the Big Top.
