The annual Shriners Circus Parade hits Downtown Grand Junction Main Street this Saturday, May 16, at 1 p.m.

Come see the craziest, colorful clowns you’ve ever seen cruising down Main on some of the strangest vehicles. The parade begins on Eighth Street and ends at Third.

The parade precedes the 64th annual Shriners Circus May 22-23 at Mesa County Fairgrounds. Shows are at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m.

Tickets are $10/adults in advance and $12 at the gate. For children, tickets are $5 in advance for children ages 4-12, or $6 at the gate. Children under 3 are free. Get your tickets to the popular event at City Market stores and Western Colorado Shrine Club Members.

Feel good knowing that the proceeds benefit the Shriners Hospitals for Children, which provide free care for kids with orthopedic conditions, burns, spinal cord injuries, cleft lip and palate.
