The 2019 Shrine – Tarzan Zerbini Circus rolled into the Tony’s Pizza Event Center for three days of fun and excitement over the weekend.
Hundreds of area children had a chance to get up close and personal with a couple of the show’s biggest stars, two elephants who gave rides before performing to the thrill of the crowd.
The intermission included a chance to have your picture taken with a real live circus snake – or just have your face painted like your favorite animal.
One of the day’s many highlights included the the Anhui Yixing Chinese Acrobats balancing atop a number of chairs stacked to the rafters.
And the Dominquez Motorcycle Stunt Team, who roared on motorcycles inside a steel cage ball.
