Fun at the Circus

A couple weeks ago we went to the Zuhrah Shrine Circus at the Target Center. My husband is a Shriner, and I'm amazed how much they do for the community. The Twin Cities Shriners Hospital exists only due to donations. Children receive care here entirely free of cost. Specialties include orthopedics, cleft lip/palate, burn unit, and spinal cord rehabilitation. Events like the circus raise funds for this fantastic place.

Oh and of course the show was fantastic! Ever see an elephant do a handstand and walk on a barrel? "Dave" shot out of a cannon?
All this and much much more. There's something so innocent and childlike about going to the circus. Watching the faces of the kids light up when they see an "amazing act" or when they are chuckling at the antics of the clowns. Yet truly, it appeals to young and old. I had a blast.
