"I just think it's a wonderful experience for them to get out and see the circus. And since we don't live in Florida or in Wisconsin where they're at, it's a wonderful family event," said Christine Merritt.
Over 200 pounds of food items were collected today. Anyone can donate until the show at 7 pm Friday. Just head to Assembly Hall and hand in your food item. In exchange, you'll get a ticket to the circus at a discounted price.
