Tyler, TX (KETK) — Elephants, tigers, and daring acrobatic stunts. The circus is in town! Here in Tyler the Sharon Shriners' Circus partnered with Jordan's World Circus, to bring locals a show unlike any other.
KETK spoke with the Treasurer of the circus, David Hamm, who said, "Jody Jordan and his crew do a wonderful job of course every year, we've been using them for a long time". The acts range from people being shot out of a cannon, to the globe of death motorcycle riders. Hamm explained, "You're going to see aerial acts, you're going to see wild animal acts, horses, dogs, clowns". The house favorite is the tiger act. Hamm said, "I'm kind of partial to Adam Burke and his trained tigers. They lead the show off and to me that's the highlight".
The group travels all over the United States performing. They spent the week touring East Texas-- visiting Lufkin, Nacogdoches and Jacksonville. The circus will spend Labor Day weekend in Smith County, and then pack up and head to New Mexico.
Tickets are $14.
