The idea of providing a special free Shrine Circus Performance
for school children was conceived by members of
the Mounted Guard years ago. They
had presented their precision drill as a part of a county
fair program, noticed how very much the
youngsters enjoyed the evening's entertainment and the concept that the youngsters
would really go for a circus performance developed. The result was that a
special free circus performance was made a reality.
This special Annual Special Shrine Circus
performance sponsored by the Ararat Mounted
Guard has now been in existence for more than 50 years. During this time, attendance at the performance has grown
from 3,000 to approximately 10,000
children. We know that the youngsters have fun at
this performance, we know that we enjoy it and the proceeds from this great bass tournament allow this tradition to continue.
