COUPON CODE: Get $5 off your Shrine Circus Tickets at Hazel Park Raceway

The circus has arrived in metro Detroit!!!

Friday morning the gleaming red semi-trucks rolled into the Hazel Park Raceway with the circus performers, animals, and props for this year's Detroit Shrine Circus. The Big Top and other circus tents are expected to go up today, with the fine details of the site finalized over the coming days.

It's been a year in coming, but they're close to show time. The Shrine circus will run from March 30 to April 1, then again April 6-8, with one day at Port Huron's McMorran Place, April 3.

The 2012 Circus features an all-new show, including one of the nation's few tiger acts, Arabian horses, and an irresistible elephant revue, as well as thrilling international acts and the favorite Shrine clowns.

"The Shrine Circus is Detroit's hometown circus -- a wholesome, affordable family experience," explained William Petrocy, Circus Director. "The Shrine Circus offers local involvement and local people... When you come to this Circus you'll see your neighbor there with his Shrine fez on working in the Circus."
