Rodney Atkins isn't the only act in town.  The circus is bringing old fashioned fun to the Muskingum County Fair.

Circus Host Melody Ramirez said the show features clowns, all kinds of animals and trapeze artists who fly through the air without nets to catch them.

"My favorite part is the cheering and seeing the people's reactions on their faces," said Ramirez.  "Kids always tell the truth, so they'll let you know if they like it or not.  We've been coming to the fair for about 7 years now, so a lot of the people who come to the show have seen some of our performers grow up, which is a lot of fun."

Ramirez said the circus is becoming a family tradition at the fair.  Deborah Smith has been bringing 3-year-old Claire to the circus since she was a baby.

"We come to the fair every year, and since they've had the circus, we make sure we get to come," said Smith.  "They usually have a giant snake that you get to pet and the camel rides.  She loves the circus, and so do I."

If you missed the circus today, you can catch the next show at 2 PM tomorrow.
