The circus is coming to Hamlet next month, but before that, local residents will have the chance to address their clown phobias with a free visit from Skeeter the Clown. Skeeter’s interactive program seeks to educate children on a variety of topics, incorporating history, math, Spanish, and sign language, as well as various learning skills.
Skeeter the Clown will visit the Starke County Fairgrounds in Hamlet on Tuesday, May 31 at 1:00 p.m., followed by the Henry F. Schricker Public Library in Knox at 3:00.
The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus will perform at the Starke County Fairgrounds on Monday, June 6, with performances at 5:00 and 7:30 p.m. The event will serve as a fundraiser for the Yellowstone Trail Fest.
