KENNEWICK, WA - Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey are bringing a new attraction to the Tri-Cities in a couple days.  It's called Super Circus Heroes.

  Today some of the performers entertained dozens of students in the Music and Art Program in the Boys and Girls Club in Kennewick.  The circus dancers, clowns and ringleader taught the kids about dancing, announcing, prat falls and other circus skills.

 "A lot of them are passionate and excited about the performing arts", said Josh Peterson, Boys & Girls Club Music & Arts Center Director. "Here at a music and arts facility it's a great opportunity for them to be up close and personal with circus performers who are professionally doing that, so it's great for them to get exposed to that up close." 

  The circus performers had another special trick up their sleeve. All the kids there today got free tickets.

  The Super Circus Heroes shows run Friday through Sunday at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.  For more information, click here.
