W.K. Ricksecker Masonic Lodge 606 has announced the lodge is again sponsoring the Kelly Miller Circus for the fourth straight year. Known as America's "One Ring Wonder," there will be two performances on July 20.

"The circus is becoming an annual event, and residents of Aurora have supported the lodge in its efforts to bring wholesome live family entertainment to Aurora," said Worshipful Master Evan Webster. "The circus is a great opportunity to spend quality time with the family."

Former Auroar Mayor Jim Fisher said this about the circus, "When I heard that the Kelly Miller Circus was returning to Aurora for the fourth year in a row, I was very pleased.

"Last year Mary Jo and I attended the circus for the first time in many years and we couldn't believe what a great show it was. In fact, if we hadn't had a prior engagement, we'd have stayed for the second performance. This is a great summer event for the Aurora community.

Every year, the circus plays 211 towns and cities in 13 states and travels about 10,900 miles.

Prices for tickets and ticket outlets will be announced later.
