Hattiesburg welcomes Cole Bros. Circus

Clowns, jugglers, acrobats and animal acts are officially in town to put on a show.

The Cole Bros. Circus has been an ongoing show for more than 125 years, and they've decided to set up shop at the Forrest County Multipurpose Center in Hattiesburg.

The next showings are Tuesday, Oct. 1 at 4:30pm and 7:30pm. Residents of the Collins Veterans Home enjoyed a visit to the circus on Monday night after circus coordinators donated tickets for the show.

There are concessions, elephant rides, shows and more. It's a family friendly event. All ages welcome.
