The St. Pauline's Center will sponsor the event. The circus will perform two shows at 5:30 and 7:30 p.m.
For more than 200 years, the famed Zerbini family name has been known in the circus field of entertainment. Alain Zerbini, owner, is a seventh generation circus performer. Alain has been touring with his own show for 15 years. The family-oriented, one-ring, European-type show provides entertainment for children of all ages, from 1 to 92.
This tented circus features skilled performers who are experts in aerial, balancing and thrill acts. The animal trainers and animals will delight the audience. Funny clowns will bring a smile to the face of all. The Zerbini Family Circus has a menagerie of animals including a buffalo, camels, ponies, minature donkey, alligators, large snakes, tortoise and dogs. Pony and camel rides and the moon bounce will be available before the shows and during admission.
Complimentary admission passes good for up to four children (14 and under) are available at the St. Pauline Center, Holy Angels Church Rectory, Nite Cap Video and the information desk at the Shamokin Area Community Hospital, starting Wednesday. Adult tickets will be available in advance and at the door.
The St. Pauline Center thanked Kulpmont Borough for the use of the complex and individuals and area businesses that purchased tickets for the children of the area to attend.
The center said all proceeds from the Children's Circus will be put towards the "Children's Diabetic Fund" of the St. Pauline Visintainer Foundation. The foundation is optimistic that they will be sending more children with diabetes to a diabetic camp this summer.
The St. Pauline Center thanked the public for its support of the center's children activities in the community and again emphasized all solicitations will be applied only for the purposes mentioned.
