Piccadilly Circus will stop at the Northwest Georgia Trade & Convention Center, 2211 Dug Gap Battle Road, in Dalton on Friday, March 1, for shows at 4:30 and 7:30 p.m.

For its 25th year, Piccadilly has "pulled out all the stops," according to spokeswoman Miranda Schlake. Among the acts in the 90-minute show are the horseback-riding Cossack Warriors in their first visit to America; Motorcycle Madness daredevils spinning in the Globe of Doom; Chitty Chitty Bang Bang's wild pack of sheepdogs; and My Little Pony on Parade, featuring the colors of the rainbow in "pony vision." A Kids Fun Zone that includes pony rides, bouncy houses and a free petting zoo opens one hour before showtime.

Child tickets are $8 general admission, $18 ringside VIP. Adult tickets are $28 and $38. However, there are discounts on all general-admission tickets. Schools and businesses in Dalton have received coupons to distribute that grant free admission to two children with each paid adult (redeemable at the box office). For adults, general-admission tickets can be purchased for half-price online at www.The FunCircus.com until 10 a.m. on show day. Adults using the BOGO option are limited to two free children's tickets.

Can't make it Friday? Piccadilly Circus will be at The Forum in Rome, Ga., on Saturday, March 2.
