Shrine Circus Offers Something For Everyone

Posted: Updated:

The first night of the 63rd annual Shrine Club Circus was held yesterday. Parents and children came to have some fun with elephants, tigers and clowns.

Fans new and old come out to the Shrine Circus to be entertained by some funny people. Especially, one of the first tricks with a clown and his teddy bear.

“I really like watching the clowns play around,” says Jeremy Hamers.

“Oh yeah, I like the lions,” says Chandler Ackeman.

“I think the lions are the best part,” says Scott Hurde.

There were many lions, and they were flying through flaming hoops. They also made tricks like laying down and standing up look easy. After the lion show, a horse, camel and llama came out and did some tricks. The tamer also brought out a mini horse.

“The greatest part of being a clown for the circus is watching all the kids and entertaining them,” says Jasper a clown.

The kids had to be entertained with all the acrobatics. The children watched as the acrobats went high in the air and performed different kinds of stunts. There was also some stunts with hula hoops that got everybody's attention.

“I'd say get a ticket and come to the circus and ride the elephants,” says Lucky the Lepraclown. “My favorite is riding the elephants.”

Jasper the clown says the best part of being a clown is making the kids laugh because it makes everybody feel better.
