Winnipeg Shrine Circus, May 19

The Circus came to town. On May 19, Saturday, the Winnipeg Shrine Circus was held at the Red River Exhibition Grounds. Representatives from the Manitoba Masonic Family were present to support the Khartum Shriners and be visible to the public.

The Komedians with their Volkswagen skit is always a crowd pleaser - an excellent start for the circus.

It was an excellent day at the Shrine Circus despite it being a cold day.
