EVANSVILLE — Military personnel and their families can get free tickets Thursday evening to this year's Hadi Shrine Circus at Roberts Stadium.
The offer is available to those on active duty or who have returned from overseas service within the last six months.
Tickets can be picked up from 5 to 7 p.m. in the parking lot in front of Had Temple at Walnut Street and Riverside Drive.
Those eligible for free tickets include spouses, children and other family members living in the same household as the service member. Shriner representatives will be checking for family military IDs.
Other family members and friends who want to attend the circus may purchase tickets for $12 from a Shriner or by phone at (812) 425-4376 or (800) 66-CLOWN.
Tickets will be good for any of the circus’ nine performances between Nov. 25-28.
The circus, which moves to the new Downtown arena next year, has been a tradition in Evansville since 1933. Billed as the greatest Shrine circus in America, acts are individually booked, so this is not a traveling circus.
