The circus is coming back to Timmins.

The Great Benjamins Circus will be back in town this Tuesday, May 2nd to the McItyre Arena. The owner of the circus Louis Leonard says being from the area makes it a little more special.

He also says his main goal is to bring entertainment to a community that does not get these types of shows very often.

Leonard says they will be performing Friday in Hearst, Saturday in Kapuskasing, Sunday in Cochrane, and Monday in Iroquois Falls as part of their tour through the area.
