BILLINGS - The Shrine Circus is in town one more night, but there's still time to witness their magic.
With only three shows left, Shriners say tickets are nearly sold out for its 7 p.m. show Saturday and two shows Sunday.
Shriner Bart Hensley says the group starts meetings in December to organize the event. The group travels to trade shows and seminars to improve the circus more each year. He says the two-hour show is a great break from normal, everyday life.
"There's so many things you see every day that don't make you feel good, but right here, these eleven shows, they make you feel good," he said. "You're fatigued and tired when you go home, but we just smile all day long and just love it."
Hensley says the circus is the largest event the Billings Al-Bedoo Shrine organizes. The final shows will be Saturday night at 7 p.m., and Sunday at 1 and 4 p.m.
