Green Wave to sponsor circus July 30-31

The Green Wave Football Association, Long Branch, will sponsor the L.E. Barnes Three-Ring Circus July 30-31 with performances at 4:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The circus will be held at the Long Branch baseball field on Atlantic Avenue.

Proceeds will benefit the Long Branch High School football team. Because the Green Wave will receive 35 percent on the advanced ticket sales and 10 percent on box office sales, it encourages advance ticket purchases.

Advanced tickets cost $10, $3 for children under age 14. Box office prices are $12, and $5 for children under age 14. L.E. Barnes has also made available "center ring" seating for an additional $2 per person (first come, first served).

The circus will feature a human cannonball, acrobats, clowns, lions, elephants, camels, horses, wire acts, and other entertainment acts for the family.

For advanced ticket sales, call Pete at (732) 935-1737.
