MIAMI, OK.--- Lions, tigers, and elephant rides bring families to a circus in the Four States this weekend and it will help a much larger cause. The goal is for kids and their families to have some fun while learning why it's important to report abuse.
"People always say, someone should do something about that. That's what we're trying to do," said Paw, Bikers Against Child Abuse.
Families from across the Four States filled the Miami Civic Center for the George Carden Super Circus Spectacular.
"They get to have fun by seeing the elephants and tigers and it's basically just a fun time for the community," said Kickstand, Bikers Against Child Abuse.
It wasn't just elephant rides and funnel cakes at this circus. A group called "Bikers Against Child Abuse" - or BACA - sponsored the event, and they worked in a message of hope for victims of child abuse.
"I think it empowers them to stand up against their perpetrators," said Kickstand.
During the circus, the group hands out information about where kids can go if they're being abused.
"This is where we can get the most exposure to the most children at one time," said Paw.
They want children to know that the men and women of BACA are there to help.
"We go to court with them, we'll go to their home. If they're afraid, they can call us in the middle of the night, and we'll go to their house. Whatever it takes. That's one of our slogans," said Kickstand.
If you missed tonight's show, there's still plenty of chances to see the circus. There are three more shows tomorrow at 11am, 3pm, and 7pm. It's being held at the Miami Civic Center. Each show lasts around two hours.
