The Zerbini Elephants Are Back! They Will Be Part of the Shrine Circus' 6 Stop Tour of Ontario

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 06/25/14 -- Editors Note: There are three photos and one video associated with this press release.

The Zerbini Elephants - Marie and Shelly - have finally arrived in Canada. They will join the Thrill Acts at the World Famous Shrine Circus for a 6 stop tour of Ontario, including the GTA, and are now the only performing circus elephants in Canada.

Saturn Garcia will also perform the thrilling Human Cannonball and the death defying Wheel of Destiny under Canada's only traditional European Big-Top Circus. Upcoming venues include Brampton, Woodbridge, Milton, Markham, Paris and Ottawa.

The 2014 all-new showcase also includes: the Year of the Horse Spectacular with the Zerbini Liberty Horses and the Zamperla Zoppe Jiocke Acrobatic Riders plus Trapeze and Aerial Artistry, Juggling, Sword Balancing, the Perilous Pole Perch, Musical Comedy, High Flying Romanian Teeterboard Acrobatics, Classical Clowns and more.

"The Shrine Circus is a traditional European big-top family circus caravan; adult performers, their children and their animals," said Larry Solheim, Circus Tour Manager. "We'll take you into a world where you'll see spectacular performances from around the globe; Germany, Romania, Italy, Argentina, Mexico, France, USA and Canada."

As part of their commitment to the responsible and economically viable preservation of rare, endangered and exotic animals, Tarzan's daughter, Patti and her husband own an exotic animal sanctuary near Gainesville, Florida (www.allaboutelephants.com).

"Elephants are incredibly intelligent; they love to be challenged, and thrive on human interaction," added Solheim. "I think we've found a workable compromise, whereby the Zerbini Asian Elephants can tour Canada in the summer months, and retire to the warmer climates of the USA in winter. This should satisfy everyone and still allow children to experience these magnificent animals firsthand."

The Annual Shrine Circus is one of the largest fraternal events sponsored by the Shriners. The Shrine Circus provides a quality, fun filled family experience with proceeds going to great causes - the good work of Shriners in your community. Kids Up Front is also the designated agency giving deserving children an opportunity to come and see the show. For more information and to purchase tickets online please visit www.shrine-circus.com.
