Kosair Shrine Circus to put on ten shows this weekend

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- The Kosair Shrine Circus is returning to Broadbent Arena.  Circus performers from around the world will come together to put on 10 shows this weekend.

Animal acts such as Johnny and his Amazing Poodles steal the show, and the 26-year-old Bo the elephant is no stranger to the circus.  He stands 13 feet tall, weighs 12,000 pounds, and can kick a soccer ball.

The "Funster Unit" has been a part of the annual event since the 1960's.

The Kosair Shriners make sure 15,000 children see the show for free.
