The Barnum & Bailey Circus may be closing on May 21st but you'll have a chance to go to the circus at the Great New York State Fair in Syracuse.

Circus Hollywood and two of its partner acts are coming back to the fair after an absence of several years. They will bring with them all of the animal acts, aerial performances, and laughter that you expect from the circus.

Joining Circus Hollywood will be the Giraffic Park Menagerie Petting Zoo and the Hollywood Racing Pigs. The petting zoo features exotic animals like a giraffe and kangaroos, while the racing pigs will bring humor and good time for all.

The Great New York State Fair has made some changes in the last few years and wanted to refresh their entertainment lineup including the Birds of Prey exhibit too.

Tara and I look forward to the circus when it comes to town and we can't wait it see it at the Fair this summer. The Great New York State Fair runs from August 23rd to September 4th and as they say "Find Your Great" at the New York State Fair.
