Morinville – A large tent was erected behind the arena Monday for two after school Circus shows. A one-ring European style circus was surrounded by bleachers, putting everyone close to the action. Acts included clowns, acrobats, aerialists, a fire eater and manipulator, magic, dogs performing various tricks, human cannonball, juggling, and a contortionist. Outside pony rides and a pirate bouncy house with slide added to the carnival atmosphere.
