Children of all ages gathered at the Gage County fairgrounds Thursday evening for a show featuring dogs, an elephant and even a clown or two.

The event marked the second year the Blue Valley Serostris Shrine Circus was held in Beatrice, and the event always leaves those in attendance with a smile, according to Ron Cerveny, circus co-director.

“The circus is not only a fundraiser and public relations so people know what we’re all about,” Cerveny said, “but it’s mainly for the kids to have fun. It’s a nice, clean family circus that’s fun for everyone.”

Highlights of the two shows held Thursday included hoop-jumping dogs, ponies, acrobats and an elephant, while clowns got splashed with water in between.

Serostris Potentate Mike Buchardt added the fun wasn’t limited to just children.

“Watch the smiles as they go out of the building, and not just the kids,” Buchardt said. “IF you watch the adults, they have just as much fun as the kids do. It’s something families can enjoy together.”

During an intermission of the shows, elephant and pony rides were available to children.

Buchardt said he believes part of the reason the show goes over so well is the way the animals are treated behind the scenes.

“I went and visited them earlier and they really do treat the animals like humans,” Buchardt said. “It’s really incredible how much they care for them and how kindly the animals are treated.”

Cerveny said funds raised by the event are used in part to help transport children in need to medical care, and last year 108,000 miles were traveled during 120 trips.
