Get ready for the big top as the world famous Shrine Circus makes it's way to Ottawa this August! 

One of my fondest memories growing up is going to the circus with my family. We only went once but it was an evening to remember. I remember sitting on my parents knee watching the performers as they wowed the audience young and old. It will be so great to take my two older kids to see the amazing show that makes the Shrine Circus all it is. 

Celebrating 251 years of family tradition, The Shrine Circus is a brilliant show under Canada's most beautiful Big Top. From acrobatics to clowns, animals and so much more, kids will be amazed and parents will be brought back to those nostalgic childhood memories of their first circus experience. 

Details about the Shrine Circus:

Friday, August 8th to Sunday, August 10th at the R.A. Center in Ottawa. 

You can expect an evening of amazement as the famed Garcia Family performs the thrilling Human Cannonball and the death defying Wheel of Destiny. Along with the spectacular thrill acts, the Shrine Circus 2014 has an all new showcase which includes the TARZAN Zerbini performing Elephants, the Year of the Horse Spectacular with Zerbini Liberty Horses and the Zamperla Zoppe Jioke Acrobatic Riders, plus Trapeze and Aerial Artistry, Juggling, Sword Balancing, the Perilous Pole Perch, Musical Comedy, High Flying Teeter board Acrobats, Classical Clowns and so much more! 

We will be experiencing the circus this year as special VIP guests! I can just imagine the excitement in their eyes when we tell them about the "big top" surprise! This will not only give us a chance to watch the amazing show but also to get a behind the scenes look at the Shrine Circus and the performers, trainers and animals who make it amazing.

  1. Why are you deleting posts that are polite but not in support of the circus. That's not how blogs work.
