Photo cred - The Shrine Circus
A circus tradition over 200 years old is setting up its big tent in Montreal, and will amaze all spectators with circus shows of every sort. The Zerbini Family Circus, otherwise known as the Shrine Circus, is bringing clowns, acrobats, and elephants (oh my!) to Parc Jean-Drapeau this September, bringing a classic circus experience to the entire city.
Dating back to 1763 in Paris, the Zerbini Family Circus has been entertaining audiences across the globe for 251 years. The tradition lives on in the form of the Shrine Circus, as the troupe travels across Ontario and Quebec to bring fun-filled joy to kids and adults alike.
A classic circus experience, the Shrine Circus will feature trained animal performances, high flying trapeze and aerial artistry, expert juggles, unicycle tricks, teeterboard acrobatics, and of course, some old fashioned clowns. Hopefully none of the Stephen King fear-fueled kinds though.
