WHAT A BUNCH O' CLOWNS

Today is your last chance to enjoy the perennial favorite of young and old alike -- the Zuhrah Shrine Circus. Long before Imax and THX sound dazzled your sight and blasted your hearing, this was the thing that took people's breath away and astonished. And it still does -- because it's real and it's live! Aerial acts, performing elephants, tigers and other animals, along with acrobats, jugglers and the always delightful Shriner clowns. Maybe you'll discover how they get so many of them into those little cars. (1:30 and 6 p.m. today. $14-$25. Target Center, 600 1st Av. N., Mpls. 651-989-5151. www.targetcenter.com.)
