Columbus – March 2017 – Aladdin Shrine Circus

The Aladdin Shrine is a  fraternity based on fun and fellowship. Their main charitable effort is support of pediatric hospitals where the children are treated regardless of ability to pay.

One of their signature events is a circus, with the Columbus one being held at the Celeste Center. This circus featured mostly human performers, with only a couple of animal acts.

It opened with all the upcoming acts gathering in the center ring.
