There’s magic underneath the big top of Cole Brothers Circus, as well as an opportunity to help a good cause.

“An old show man once said to me, ‘It’s like becoming a kid again,’” Chris Connors, Cole Bros. Circus ringmaster and performance director, said of both watching and performing in a circus.

The Cole Bros. Circus, the world’s largest tented circus, comes to town Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at Walter B. Jones Park in Havelock. Show times are 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.

A portion of the proceeds benefit the Havelock Veterans of Foreign Wars post.

Advance tickets are $16 for adult general admission, and $4 more for reserved seats. VIP seats are available for $7 more. Free tickets for kids 12 and under can be found at Advance tickets can be purchased through Sunday at Kittrell Auto Sales on Main Street in Havelock, Tops Cigars on Main Street in Havelock, the Painted Pelican on U.S. 70 in Morehead City, Coastal Mini Storage on U.S. 70 in Havelock, or at

The shows will also act as a fundraiser for local civic organizations. VFW Post 7315 in Havelock will receive a portion from the circus proceeds to put toward its programs.

“Not only is this a special event for families, it really does help the local areas where we perform,” said Bill Carter, senior marketing director for Cole Bros. Circus.
