Circus kicks off summer seriesJune 20,2013Circus kicks off
The circus comes to Center Street on Friday.
A “Solstice Circus” is the first event in the Downtown Rutland Partnership’s summer series (formerly known as “Friday Night Live.”)
Circus acts from Wonderle’s Big Top Adventures and animals from Independence Petting Farm will be on display from 6 to 10 p.m. Rick Redington & The Luv will provide live music.
The Partnership is making this year’s downtown events smoke-free, so participants are asked not to smoke within the event area.
The event is sponsored by Green Mountain Power’s Smart Power System.MORE IN This Just In
