Circus Smirkus: The circus came to town this week in a big way, “capturing” two dozen young youngsters and training them to put on their own show. The program, sponsored by the Cultural Organization for the Arts, brought a member of Circus Smirkus to town to teach kids about the circus. Children from Hanaford, Eldredge and Cole gathered after school every day this week. For a glimpse of their mid-week progress, check out the video attached. But to see what a whole week of circus life can do, come to their performance tonight at 7 at the Varnum Armory on Main Street! It’s $5 per person, $10 per family.
