Weekend Events (October 25-27)
This unique, family-oriented traveling circus troupe has been touring the country for four years and was recently featured on CBS Sunday Morning! Created by former Ringling Bros. Ringmaster Kevin Venardos, this animal-free circus features a cast of aerialists, acrobats, comedians, jugglers, contortionists and daredevils hailing from around the world. The Broadway-style opening and closing singing and dancing add another level of storytelling and magic to the experience.
Steed’s Dairy in Grovetown offers up outdoor fall fun that includes hayrides, cow milking demos, a pumpkin patch, zip lining for kids, and much more. The main attraction, though, is the twisting, turning 5-acre corn maze. Add this to your list, as this is one of the best corn mazes in Georgia.
