Our animal partners are respected and revered members of the Circus World family, and help to tell the story of the American circus. Children of all ages enjoy watching the animals and human entertainers work in harmony, side by side, and in the ring this year will be ponies, dogs and elephants. Elephant and pony rides will also be offered at specific times throughout the day. Circus World believes that positive, healthy environments are vital to working with animals. The animals featured at Circus World are fed, watered, groomed and cleaned daily with access to the area’s best veterinary care. Each fall we offer our elephant manure to area farmers for any donation they choose to make. It is excellent fertilizer for gardens.
