Shrine Circus coming to Douglas County Fairgrounds
The Alexandria Shrine Circus will be at the Douglas County Fairgrounds on June 22 with two shows at 2:30 and 7 p.m.
The show will feature Daniel Raffo, a fifth generation circus performer, and his group of tigers.
Raffo began presenting animals at age 13. His feline cohorts consist of Siberian, Sumatra and Bengal tigers. He trains them for four years before they can join the act. The maneuvers that the tigers perform are extensions of their natural abilities.
