If any of the three elephants in the Yelduz Shrine Circus like peanuts, they'll be out of luck at 4 p.m. today
There will not be peanuts in the building for the opening performance of the Yelduz Shrine Circus. No peanuts will be sold. The popcorn will be popped with oil that doesn’t contain nuts. Candy bars containing peanuts will be removed from the building.
This is the first year that the Yelduz Shrine has officially had a peanut-free circus performance. In past years, individuals have saved a few seats for friends at the first circus performance.
This year, a special area will be taped off in the balcony for those with peanut allergies this afternoon. Only the first of the seven performances is a peanut-free event.
That news is good for parents of children who are allergic to nuts.
