Reno welcomes Shrine Circus
March 18, 2013 by Sarah
The 66th Annual Shrine Circus will be in Reno appearing at the Reno Sparks Livestock Events Center at the end of this week.
The Kerak Shrine is part of the larger International organization which includes several countries. Shriners are well-known for their contributions and dedication to 22 hospitals providing medical care for children under 18 years of age. Many of the burn hospitals are located throughout the country in cities like Boston, Cincinnati, Northern California, and Galveston. With the level of medical expertise being so high in Northern California, many burn victims are flown directly into that facility.
Shriners are active in many areas and have become well-known for their costumed attire at several of the events, including parades. Becoming a Shriner requires status of Master Mason in good standing and in possession of a valid blue lodge dues card. An application is available online to complete and it must be signed by two Kerak Shriners.
General admission tickets may be purchased at local Scolari’s markets in Reno. Children are $12, while adult tickets are $14. Reserved seating and box seats will be available the week of the event through the Reno Sparks Livestock Events Center box office.
Managing a circus of this size is not an easy feat; it requires planning and excellent coordination, so it would be no surprise if banner printing services were sought in preparation for the event.
The circus is set for this weekend, March 22 – 24. The show will begin at 7:00 pm on Friday night, 11:00 am, 3:00 pm, and 7:00 pm on Saturday, and 1:00 pm and 5:00 pm on Sunday.
