If you've been wondering if circuses still exist, the answer is "yes" and in fact, one will be coming to Oneonta for the first time in a long time on June 20 and 21 to the 6th ward athletic field. Norwich will also play host to The Zerbini Family Circus and will bring the Big Top on June 18.

The Zerbini Family Circus is described on their facebook page as a family owned and operated old fashioned circus which has been in the circus business for over 250 years.

One thing to be aware of, this circus features animals.  Many circuses over the years have been charged with animal cruelty.  That is not to say that the Zerbini Family Circus has.  I have not seen a report but I do advise that if you don't enjoy seeing animal acts at a circus and prefer circuses that only feature people, then this is not the circus for you.
