The circus is coming to town and I can’t wait to take my family to share in the mystery and magic that only the circus can deliver. When was the last time you took the entire family for a special performance like this? The is a great way to kick off your summer.. You too can capture the magic of The Shrine Circus by buying discounted tickets, joining the Twitter Party for a chance to win tickets or entering the contest to win a family trip for 4 to Florida to an elephant ranch valued at $4000! Best of all, proceeds support the good work of the philanthropic work of the Shriners towards children’s hospitals.
As a kid, I remember my parents taking my brother to the circus and those trips under the big top are still right up there as top childhood memories. Who can ever forget the first time they saw trapeze artists flying high across the big top tent, enjoying the clowns make work their magic and watch in amazement as the Ringmaster commands his stallions, elephants, and tigers? Truly unforgettable.
On June 21st, The Shrine Circus kicks off it’s six city Summer 2013 Ontario tour in Rexdale (near the airport in Toronto) and wraps up in Ottawa on August 11th. (see complete list below) There are many locations within an hour’s drive of Kitchener Waterloo Cambridge so your circus adventure is a short road trip away. This is going to be a wonderful evening and I encourage you to capture the magic of the circus as well with your family.
I am really excited to have been chosen as an circus ambassador to attend with my family for opening night this Friday June. 2013 to be a part of the Zerbini Family Circus’ 250th Anniversary Celebration.
