Step right up and see the wonderful, the magical, Detroit Shrine Circus, celebrating its 110th year in 2016. That’s right: The hometown circus is back in the city on April 7-10, 2016 – this year for the first time at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi. See animals, crazy clowns and enjoy high-wired action!
Right when you enter, enjoy an indoor midway of rides, games and animals, too. Then, head inside the big top to see the Arabian horses, tigers – and two elephants who do tricks by voice command. Plus, the energetic clown performance will have everyone laughing!
Along with all the laughter, you’ll be amazed by the breathtaking high-wire acts doing stunts. See the aerialists, flying trapeze – plus the gymnastics who have traveled all the way from China to perform.
Don’t forget to gobble down some popcorn and hot dogs while watching (and perhaps some cotton candy!).
