Sick children treated to old fashioned circus

Saint Vincent's Medical Center provided a fun day for some very special children.     
The center's foundation hosted the 17th annual Zerbini Family Circus at Beardsley Park in Bridgeport.
The old fashioned circus featured different animals and trapeze artists. 
The invitation-only performance is for area children suffering from cancer and other medical conditions, who normally would not be able to attend the circus.
Over 750 children will attend the circus's shows.
The foundation is able to hold the event due to a generous gift from the Elizabeth M. Pfriem Foundation.
