The Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey circus is in town this weekend.
Children and families with the Chambliss Shelter got first hand experience with some of the crew.
The kids live with foster families in Chattanooga and this is one way to help them bond while having fun.
"They're so wonderful and to see the smiles on their faces, it's just worth it. It's such a blessing to be able to work with these kids," said Ringmaster David Shipman.
The circus will be at McKenzie arena tonight through Sunday.
