Fargo may have postponed their Shrine Circus due to flooding, but the annual event is still on schedule to arrive in Detroit Lakes on Thursday.


Circus Co-chairman and Advertising Chair Jack Longfors said some of the circus acts will be the same as they are every year, but this year will feature a grizzly bear, one of only a few in the country.

Other animal acts include a Bengal tiger and an elephant.

"You always have to have elephants," Longfors said.
