It’s that time of year again, the Shrine Circus is coming to Lake Charles just in time for some family fun!

If your family loves the circus, you will not be disappointed with what this “Circus with a Purpose” has planned.

The Habibi Shrine Circus is always great fun with lots of show-stopping acts like amazing daredevils performing dangerous stunts...
