NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) - Clowns with the Ringling Brothers traveling circus stopped by Norfolk's CHKD to help put a smile on some young patients' faces.
The entertainers are in town to perform at Norfolk Scope Thursday through Sunday.
"A visit from Ringling Bros. is always a treat for our young patients," Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters Child Life Manager Shannon Hood, said. "It gives them a chance to laugh and relax - something important for their treatment process."
