One-day, two-show circus to perform June 9

PAXTON — The circus is coming to town.

The park district's board this week approved a motion to sponsor a one-day, two-show circus at Coady Park. Culpepper & Merriweather will present two shows with traditional circus performances, including acrobats, on the evening of June 9.

"I think it's a good opportunity for the community and the kids — something different," board president Brad Strebeck said. "We've got enough ground here for them to do it, so I guess we're going to give it a try and take a chance on it."

The district will sponsor the event with an estimation of no more than $500, including a $290 fee to Culpepper & Merriweather, which is based in Hugo, Okla. The rest of the money will be used to provide a dumpster rental and a water source.
