83 Years Under the Big Top!
Yes, the Hadi Shrine Circus has dazzled both the young and old in the tri-state since 1933. Hadi Temple is quite rightly proud of the show’s long history. We now have third and fourth generation families that are coming to see the circus – it’s good, wholesome entertainment for a reasonable price. And it’s consistently one of the greatest shows on Earth.
2016 marks the sixth production at the Ford Center after 55 years at Roberts Stadium. During its incredible run, the Hadi Shrine Circus has changed with the times, evolving from a traditional production to a flashier style of show, especially over the last few years. There are typical acts like jugglers, lion tamers, acrobats, etc. You will still see those acts, but now it’s more elaborate with more dazzling lighting, music and special effects – lots of action to keep the kids on the edge of their seats. In order to keep the production fresh, the Hadi Shrine Circus contracts individual performers rather than signing on a full production. This allows for a unique presentation and the opportunity to grow and cultivate new ideas.
Of course, the success of the circus is dependent on the animals. All of the animals are treated like family – “like gold.” They receive top-quality care including annual check-ups and vaccinations. In addition, some of the dogs that perform during the show were rescued from shelters.
This year’s Hadi Shrine Circus required 11 months of planning and over 1,000 people working together to create something truly special. So, be sure to get your tickets early – and get your kids to the show 1-hour early for the opportunity to ride the elephants, ponies and camels.
