The Shrine Circus will be in Havre on Wednesday, June 28.
The circus, produced this year by Jordan World Circus out of Las Vegas, will be held at the Great Northern Fairgrounds, weather permitting, or in the Bigger, Better Barn if not. Shows will be at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m.
Animals, acrobats, clowns and more will entertain, with the proceeds funding needed care for children.
Advance tickets for the show are $7 for adults, and are $7.50 for adults and $2.50 for children at the gate. See your local merchants for free tickets for children. Tickets are available at Hank Tweeten's Auto Body, Tire-Rama and Northern Insurance.
The proceeds from the circus are used to fund the free children's hospitals The Shrine of North America have run since 1922. The circus is the main fundraiser for the Shrine Hospitals. Members of the North Central Montana Shrine Club help provide transportation for local children to go to the hospitals, where orthopedic, burn and spinal cord injury care are provided free of charge.
