Entertainers with the Carson and Barnes Circus make it a family affair.
Dallas, Texas (WiredPRNews.com) – A family operated circus comes to the Dallas-Fort Worth area. As reported by the Dallas Morning News, the Carson and Barnes Circus will perform shows in the area during the coming weeks, and feature members of the Parra family.
Kristin Parra, whose family has reportedly operated the circus for more than 70 years, is quoted in the report as stating of the close knit circle of circus travelers, 15 of whom are her relatives, “We come together not only to celebrate good things – births of babies and weddings and birthdays – but we come together in times of need, if someone passes away.”
Parra is further quoted as stating of performing, “I love that we go into a town and families can come out and forget about their worries and stresses… Knowing that my family is bringing their family together and it’s something they can remember forever – that, right there, is why we do it.”
