Shrine Circus

FARGO - Pink's circus-like concert in January set the bar high for artists who followed her at the Fargodome.

So it makes sense the only show that could match that spectacle would be this weekend's El Zagal Shrine Circus.

Cindy Migley's Circus Spectacular rolls into town for a six-show run starting at 7 Friday night. Other shows are at 10 a.m., 2 and 6 p.m. Saturday and noon and 4 p.m. Sunday.

Of course, there will be lions and tigers and bears (oh my!), but recent shows have also included a parade of elephants, dog tricks and a pig fashion show.

It's not all about the animals. What would a circus be without breath-taking high-wire acts, dazzling aerialists and trapeze artists?

And, of course, the clowns. Whether they come piling out of a painfully compact car or run up into the stands to get up close to the kids, it's just not a circus without the clowns.

What else does the circus have in store? You'll have to show up to find out.
