2013 Lansing Shrine Circus Celebrates 70 Years of Family Fun!

FLINT, Mich., Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- The Elf Khurafeh Shrine Circus is set to arrive at the Lansing Center January 9th and will continue until January 13th. This year the Elf Khurafeh Shrine Circus celebrates seventy years of family friendly Shrine Circus Fun. In light of the many sellout shows in 2012, the Shriners are going to be adding more shows than ever and making it easier for guests to get their tickets through the official Lansing Shrine Circus website at www.lansingshrinecircus.com.

If you've ever been let down by a circus experience, the Lansing Shrine Circus is the antidote to disappointment. With an emphasis on spectacle and the feel of a classic big top traveling circus, the Lansing Shrine Circus is one of the greatest shows of its type.

This all new Shrine Circus will combine a dazzling entourage of animal attractions including trained elephants, enormous alligators, beautiful horses, Egyptian camels and exotic tigers, not to mention the breath taking spectacle of the traditional circus performers that you come to the big top for in the first place, not the least of which include the trapeze artists and gravity-defying daredevil stunt performers.

The fun begins an hour before the circus opens with elephants and pony rides for the kids, face painting for the young and young at heart, and a wide array of challenging games for kids of all ages. The younger kids will love the bounce houses, while anyone who's feeling a little hungry will be able to explore the wide array of fried, baked and boiled foods on display.

This is just for starters as there simply isn't enough space here to list all of the activities and attractions on display surrounding the circus, but take our word for it: you won't be able to experience everything before the gates open for the main event. Once you've had your fill of salty treats and sweets and you've walked and talked with the animals, the circus itself will take place within the comfort of the Lansing Center.

To learn more, we refer you once more to the official Lansing Shrine Circus website at www.LansingShrineCircus.com where you can find all of the information that you'll need in order to book your seats and schedule your trip out to the show. Call 810.288.7479 to get your hands on some circus tickets for any of the performances you like, or contact the Circus at the Lansing Center Box Office.

Although the Circus is holding extra performances and making tickets as easy as possible to access, there's no guarantee that "supplies will last" as the saying goes, so don't waste time, get your tickets as soon as possible.

If you're looking for a place to take the office or special consideration, call the Shrine Office at 810.406.5214 and ask about special corporate ticket packages or V.I.P. tickets.

All proceeds from the Shrine Circus will benefit the Elf Khurafeh Shrine Center, however, it should be noted that they are not tax deductible as a charitable donation.

Circus History in Michigan

The Shrine Circus was founded in the United States in 1906. It travels to 120 cities per year in the United States and a separate unit travels to about 40 in Canada. It is affiliated with the Ancient Arabic Order of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, a.k.a. the Shriners.

The Shrine Circus has a history dating back more than a century. The organization celebrated their 104th birthday on 2/26/2010. Flint, Michigan usually plays host to the circus each January. The circus then travels to at least one city per week through November.

Originally a one-ring affair, the circus grew to three rings by 1925. Detroit still boasts the largest event even as the show travels to other cities, having, in 1996, ran for 17 days straight with a total of 40 performances making it not only the oldest Shrine Circus, but also the most attended.

By the 1920s Shrine Circuses were being conducted throughout the country, and each year additional Shrine Centers introduced circuses to their communities, creating a network as rich with culture and history as anything with the names of Ringling, Barnum or Bailey attached.
