-- The Bell County Expo Center roars to life with tantalizing tigers, enchanting elephants, and dramatic daredevils as the legendary Shrine Circus rolls into Belton for three thrilling days. Passionate performers from 15 countries will dazzle circus fans with new, amazing feats in the biggest and best Shrine Circus ever.
The Shrine Circus is the only interactive circus in the world! This year’s show includes the opportunity of a lifetime, as audience members are welcomed into the circus rings before, during intermission, and after the circus to meet the stars, ride ponies and elephants, and take photographs. The Karem Shrine is throwing a Pre-Party for all who wish to hobnob with local celebrities, or for those who just love to clown around!
Michelle Audrey, is delighted to act as emcee on behalf of the Karem Shrine, “This is a show that is all about family fun and creating memories.” The Espana Family Daredevils ride custom motorcycles to conquer a tightrope and tempt the Wheel of Death. Prepare to cover your eyes! Bo the Elephant performs amazing tricks with his bevy of pachyderm babes under the celebrated direction of trainer Larry Carden. Weighing in at almost 6 tons, Bo is a big star! Lloyd’
s Old English Sheepdogs are anything but a dog-and-pony show. Combining comedy and renowned animal training, this act is a crowd favorite, paws and hooves down. The Georgettes are a talented troupe of showgirls who weave dance and music into artistry. Literally, these beauties wrapped only in aerial silks will soar to the very top of the arena. Never wanting to leave the best for last, the Shrine Circus opens with an adrenaline pumping tiger act from Bruno Blaszac’s Bengal Tigers. How do you make 8 tigers dance and jump through a fiery ring? “Very carefully,” explains Bruno.
The Karem Shrine Circus is the hottest ticket in town! The Shriners are pleased to offer affordable family entertainment, and many past attendees call the show a perfect “stay-cation.”
