Free smiles at the Ramos Bros. Circus

Los Angeles-area children in the foster care system got a free, private show at the Ramos Bros. Circus in Glendale on Sunday thanks to former NBA player Brad Wright and Glendale Kia President Onnik Mehrabian.

Last year, Wright bought a free show for needy children, but this year, he and Mehrabian partnered with the Ramos Bros. Circus so they could host more free shows for at-risk children and community members.

Attendees enjoyed an afternoon of clowns, music, free meals from Johnny Rockets and performing dogs.

City officials asked the circus to eliminate animals from the show this year — partially because a camel escaped onto a Glendale street last year. However, dogs and cats were permitted.

The circus, which is set up in the Civic Auditorium parking lot at 1401 N. Verdugo Road, is scheduled to run through Dec. 2.
