Celebration 125 - Circus Spectacular (NJ) June 29-30
Posted June 10, 2019
The New Jersey circus event of the year!

In celebration of the town’s 125th anniversary and back by public demand, the Little Ferry Hose Company Number 1 will present its Celebration 125 - Circus Spectacular, featuring the all-new 81st edition of the Kelly Miller Circus presented under the big top! Come see for yourself a new era in circus entertainment that respects the rights of all creatures and emphasizes the art of human performance during each 90-minute show with no seat more than 50 feet from the ring! The "circus with a purpose" proceeds benefit the Little Ferry Hose Company Number One.

Come see the "show before the show" as the giant big top rises in Saturday morning's tent raising, and the circus lot comes to life. Bring your camera!

On Saturday evening, in recognition of the town's 125th anniversary, the hose company will present a free, old-fashioned "windjammers" style concert under the big top, featuring the renowned 75-piece Mercer County Symphonic Band under the direction of Dr. Lou Woodruff, featuring 1.5 hours of circus and patriotic favorites. Come for the show, and stay for the concert!

Featured attraction appearing both days on the midway will be one of the largest fairground band organs in the USA, performing a selection of classic old-world, circus, and patriotic tunes. Come hear this magnificent mechanical musical masterpiece for yourself as this work of art makes its first appearance in our area.

The Felix Adler-Paul Binder tent of the Circus Fans of America will be on hand celebrating its 85th anniversary. Here's your chance to talk with its members about the history of the circus and their great organization. Look for them on the midway and about the circus lot. It's a great organization for those who want to learn more about all things circus!

The Little Ferry 125th anniversary committee will also be on the midway. Here's your chance to buy some Little Ferry merchandise and get the latest details for the town's celebration events.
