You may have noticed a huge tent in the parking lot of the Spokane Valley Mall. This, of course, means that the Shrine Circus is back in town. If you're looking for something to do this weekend, there will be shows today, Saturday and Sunday before everything is packed up and hauled off to the next city.

The tent is home to clowns, horses, elephants, acrobats and a high diver. Performance times are 3 and 7:30 p.m. today; 11 a.m., 3 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. Saturday; and 1 and 5 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $10 and are available at the Albertsons in Liberty Lake and on Saturday and Sunday will also be available at the Spokane Valley Mall kiosk.
