I had the pleasure of watching the Tarzan Zerbini Family Circus live and in person and loved every minute of it!
I'm a people-watcher and judging from the smiles from those sitting in the seats around me... everyone was enjoying themselves. Gasps could be heard under the Big Top as acrobats flew through the air followed by cheers as the circus family members finished their performances. Little ones pointed and giggled as the elephants performed, Marie and Shelly love to be the center of attention.
It is hard to put into words all the emotions I experienced in one night. It was my first time ever at a traditional circus! I was mesmerized at every turn.
You’ll see the largest exotic cat act in the world with up to 10 Bengal Tigers plus the TARZAN Zerbini Performing Elephants, Trapeze & Aerial Artistry, Jugglers, Unicycles, High Flying Acrobatics, Cavorting Clowns, the Incredible Circus Wheel and much more! ~ Shrine Circus Blog
When I experienced the behind the scenes tour of Tarzan Zerbini's circus last month, which in Ontario and Quebec is known as the Shrine Circus, I carefully watched the caretakers as they washed the elephants and fed the horses. As someone who owned, traveled with and showed horses her entire teenage life, I was very impressed with the level of care these animals received.
This European-style circus isn't just for the little ones... it's for all of us young at heart!
The Circus is coming to Ontario in less than two weeks!!
I'm especially looking forward to taking my entire family and of course... meeting their Bengal Tigers (they were delayed at the US / Canada border last month when they were in Calgary).
2013 is a monumental year for the TARZAN Zerbini Family Circus. Since its humble start in Paris, France in 1763, ten generations of Zerbini families have travelled the world sharing their talents. We’re inviting YOU to be a part of this 250th Anniversary Celebration! ~ Shrine Circus Blog
