The big top is up in Bay County and the new Bole Brothers Circus is opening Monday night in Panama City. It was setup time Monday morning in the Panama City Mall parking lot that has now turned into the world's largest circus under the big top.
The animals were getting ready for their big performance starting Monday night at 4:30 and 7:30 through Wednesday. Robert Kellard with the circus say it costs about the same as a movie ticket, but it's family fun for everyone.
"You have live family entertainment under the big top. You can almost touch the acts under the big top; so close, so colorful, so exciting. It's a once or twice a year treat for the children and adults alike."
Tickets are $15 for adults and $10 for children younger than 13 years old.
