The Las Vegas Zelzah Shrine Circus will feature elephants, camels, horses, tigers and "a great dog act."

Forget the iPods and iPads, the blockbuster movies with computer-generated effects and other technologically rigged staples of 21st century entertainment.
When visitors go to the Las Vegas Zelzah Shrine Circus, which begins a four-day run this evening at Orleans Arena, everything they see will be totally live and wholly authentic.
And that, says circus owner George Carden, a nearly lifelong veteran of the circus, is why, even in high-tech times, the circus still enthralls.
Circuses, Carden says, will be around for "as long as we're going to have children in this world."
Proceeds from the Las Vegas Zelzah Shrine Circus go toward the operation of Zelzah Shrine Temple Las Vegas. That organization, in turn, supports charitable activities of Shriners International, including medical services the organization offers to children.
Carden says the appeal of the circus lies in its appeal to not just children, but adults, too.
"We always like to say that no one is too old or too young for it," he says.
