Two eager audience members enjoy an elephant ride prior to Tuesday’s presentation of Circus Pages, held at Southgate Civic Center courtesy of the city’s Parks and Recreation department. Director Jodi Truell said the annual event, with two shows offered last week, brought the traveling show to town complete with lions, tigers, acrobats, clowns and daredevil motorcyclists. Children were admitted free with a paying adult and the department offered coupons for the family-friendly show.
