The Sharon Shrine Circus makes its annual swing through East Texas during the Labor Day weekend.
Performances will take place in Longview and then Tyler.
Shows are scheduled for:
-- 4:30 and 7:30 p.m. Friday at Maude Cobb Center in Longview;
-- 3 and 7 p.m. Saturday at The Oil Palace in Tyler;
-- 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. Sunday at The Oil Palace, Tyler;
-- 1:30 and 5:30 p.m. Monday at The Oil Palace, Tyler.
Tickets cost $18 for adults and $14 for children. Tickets will be on sale at each venue one hour before the performance.
The circus is presented by Jordan Productions, a circus based in Las Vegas that travels throughout the United States presenting an array of traditional comedy and thrill acts.
The shows will include "death-defying aerial acts and animal attractions including tigers and elephants," according to information from promoters.
Children who attend the circus also will have the opportunity to ride and pet different types of animals.
The performances raise money for the Tyler-based Sharon Shrine Temple. The benevolent work of the Shriners includes providing free medical care for children with severe burns and orthopedic and spinal cord injuries.
