Oskaloosa, Iowa – The Shriner Circus made it’s way to Oskaloosa and the Southern Iowa Fairgrounds Thursday evening, with a full 3 rings of activity.
The Shriners have been holding circus’s for many years, but the Kaaba Shriners of Iowa brought them back to this area 3 years ago.
The circus acts included many talents, animals including elephants, and comedic clowns to entertain those in attendance. Shriners made sure to help kids that wanted to come to the circus to have the opportunity to do so. This included those who might not normally have the means to do so, such as low income families and others on fixed incomes.
“This is one of the ways we get out there, we like to help kids so it’s great to have this kind of event.” Todd Gullickson of the Shriners said of their circus at the fairgrounds.read more at: http://oskynews.org/?p=25843
