Circus gives free preview ahead of main event

The 2015 Ben Hur Shrine Circus starts Friday night at the Cedar Park Center.

Organizers gave FOX 7 a little peek at what circus-goers will be seeing.

They had their elephant lunch outside the venue around noon Friday.

There was a feast of elephant-friendly food along with circus clowns and entertainers to meet fans and take pictures.

The event was free and open to the public.

If you'd like to see the circus there are still tickets available at the Cedar Park Center.

They have performances all weekend long.
