This was an awesome experience! All of the staff and actors were very nice. It was real neat to see how organized they were and kept the show going at all times. It may not by Ringling Brothers, but it sure ranks right up there...More

Attended the Shrine Circus this weekend at the Hershey Centre this past weekend. It was an extremely long wait to get in. When we finally did it was very hot and uncomfortable inside the tent. Everything was costly in comparison to value. Won't be going...More
