Skeeter the Clown made her way around some Guthrie elementary schools Tuesday afternoon to spread the word that the circus is coming to town.
Skeeter drew a large crowd at Central, Cotteral and Fogarty schools as she showed off her whistling skills and her ability to balance a tall feather on her finger, chin and nose. The balancing acts was approved by ooh’s and aah’s from pre-k all the way to the third graders.
Skeeter is a part of the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus, America’s Favorite Big Top Circus, who is coming to town on Wednesday, September 19 at the Cottonwood Flats with two scheduled performances at 5 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.
C&M Circus has become internationally known for quality family entertainment. This authentic One-Ring, Big Top Circus has been featured on National Geographic’s Explorer TV series, Entertainment Tonight, The Los Angeles Times, The Chicago Tribune, and Arizona Highways Magazine.
