It's tradition that my family goes to the Hadi Shrine Circus every year on Thanksgiving Day. After gorging ourselves on turkey and mashed potatoes, we find our way to Roberts Stadium, rather The Ford Center for the past 2 years. Last year, being the first year in the new Center, the Circus showed it's age and barely capable of holding me and my daughters attention. So what's new with the 2012 79th Annual Hadi Shrine Circus?
The first thing I noticed this year was that the acts were completely out of order. Some of the larger and more grand performances were actually pushed toward the first half of the show. This helped immensely as there was less filler and the excitement level was held high.
