A VISIT TO A CIRCUS
Last Sunday, I went to see a circus show with my friends, the circus party was called Great Gemini Circus.

They welcomed the visitors. Then there was a ladder show. A girl climbed up the ladder without any support. Another girl came on a cycle with one wheel. Then the jokers came. It was great fun. A ring master came with a lion.
The lion obeyed him. Then monkeys and elephants showed different feats of skill. A young girl showed her shooting skill. The elephant saluted the people with its trunk. The horses came and ran in a circle. It was a very interesting show. All enjoyed it.

The events closed with a prize giving ceremony. The prizes were given away by the Chairman of a Games Club.
