The Shrine Circus is coming to Ottawa!

This weekend the Shrine Circus is in town! Have you been to the circus? We went last year and were dazzled by the trapeze artists, awed by the tigers, amazed by the unicycling, and wowed by the elephants. The entire circus, from the big tents to the small details, was amazing. I can't wait to go again this year.

I know some people don't go to the circus because of the animals. The Shrine Circus does include animals like elephants, tigers, and horses, and they've done things to ensure that these animals are treated well. There are links on their website with more information and I will report back with everything we see at the show.

The circus is at the RA Center and is about 2.5 hours long with an intermission. There are multiple shows this weekend:

Firday, August 8th at 4pm and 7:30pm
Saturday, August 9th at 12pm, 4pm, and 7:30pm
Sunday, August 10th at 1pm and 5pm

If you want to see the circus while it's in Ottawa, you can buy tickets on site or buy tickets online on the Shrine Circus site. Make sure you use the promo code "HOT DOG" to get 2-for-1! And for anyone in Montreal, the code "TRAPEZE" will get you the same deal.

Have you ever been to the circus?
