Melha Shrine Circus Has Started!

shriner circusWEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) — Promising family fun, the Melha Shrine Circus is back in town!

Tonight kicks off the event which is being held at The BIG E in West Springfield.

This year’s theme is Thrills and Chills and crowd favorite motorcycle stunt devil Johnny Rocket is back again.

The Shriners say everyone will have a good time so come check it out.

ABC40 spoke with Chair Allen Zippin with the Melha Shrine Circus and he told us, “I’ve said to people, how many places can you think of where you can take your family, get in for the price we charge, get two and a half hours of entertainment, and comfortable with the oldest to youngest enjoying the same thing. Not many places are left like this, and this is one.”

The Shriners say all the money they earn through this circus stays local.

The show runs now through Sunday at the BIG E and you can catch ABC40′s Brittany Decker hosting the event at 2:30 p.m. this Saturday.
