Attending the Hadi Shrine Circus? Be Aware of New Clear Bag Policy at the Evansville Arena


EVANSVILLE -- The Hadi Shrine Circus begins this week at the Ford Center in Evansville and arena security wants to remind you of its new clear bag policy.

To increase safety and reduce wait times, each person can only bring one clear bag into the venue.

Blankets and jackets are still allowed if they are carried loosely or fit inside a clear bag.

Officials with Ford Center say accommodations can be made for people with medical needs.

You can see more information on the new policy below..... 

Some highlights to our policy:

  • Every ticket holder can bring an approved clear bag (12x6x12in max), so if your child has a ticket, they can have a (clear) bag and/or  (4.5 x 6.5in max) clutch/wristlet
  • No wallet/wristlet/coin purse can exceed 4.5 x 6.5 in, even if it is place in a Clear Bag.  No unclear bag/wallet/wristlet can exceed the 4.5 x 6.5 in approved wristlet/clutch even if it fits in the approved 12x6x12in clear bag.
  • Medical bags that do not fit in the 12x6x12in clear bag can be approved after assessed by security and will be tagged to show it has been approved to be inside the venue.
