GREENVILLE — Greenville will be hosting a big top circus this weekend.

The Carson and Barnes Circus has scheduled two days of performances benefiting Ridgecrest Hispanic Baptist Church. The shows are scheduled for 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. today and Sunday at the Hunt County Fairgrounds.

The Hugo, Okla.-based circus comes complete with trapeze artists, jugglers, acrobats, horses, dogs, elephants and, of course, clowns.
