FARGO – Plans to fire a human cannonball today along Fargo's Broadway remains on track. The stunt is planned to generate enthusiasm for the El Zagal Shrine Circus’ three-day.
Amid cloudy skies and a call for sprinkles later this evening, the Shriners will launch a human cannonball at 5:30 p.m. in front of the U.S. Bank Plaza at Broadway and Second Avenue.
Crews will close the 200 block of Broadway at 4 p.m. to allow for setting up the cannonball exhibit, said Bryan Shinn, a spokesman for the El Zagal Shriners.
The Shrine Circus will be held Friday through Sunday at the Fargodome. General admission tickets are available at all Hornbacher’s, Sun Mart’s, Shop n’ Go’s, Cash Wise’s, and Richard’s BP in Moorhead. Advance reserved tickets are available at the Fargodome box office and all Ticketmaster locations.
