PRLog - June 26, 2012 - OTTUMWA, Iowa -- A cultural kaleidoscope of color and opulent panorama of pageantry kicks off a star-studded, all new, never before seen line up as the Kaaba Shrine Circus Spectacular rolls into Ottumwa. Enchanting elephants, tantalizing tigers, and amazing acrobats prepare to dazzle and astound. This benefit series is hosted by the esteemed Kaaba Shriners.
“In my 50 years in the circus, I’ve never had this much talent in one show,” said George Carden of this year’s Kaaba Shrine Circus. Newly discovered acts by Carden include:
• Daniel Raffo, World Renowned Tiger Trainer. Direct from Argentina, Raffo’s bevy of beautiful Bengal big cats are untamed, untethered, and utterly unpredictable.
• Andrea and Lluvia, Courageous and Indescribable. This daring duo hangs high above the arena, by their hair while spinning at dangerous speeds and juggling flaming batons.
• Broadway Bo, The World’s Largest Performing Elephant. Trained by Larry Carden. In a jaunty top hat, see this incredible 5 ton pachyderm perform feats of precision and perfection.
• Hernando and Marius, Motorcycle Madness. Not for the faint of heart, Hernando and Marius take motocross to new heights, combining dangerous daredevils and a delicate incline wire.
And, the Circus Spectacular has one of the only female ringmasters in the circus world, Ms. Audrey Michelle.
Tickets are $12 for children, and $18 for adults, and Ringmaster (VIP Floor seating), $22. Children 3 and under in general admission seats are free.
