The midway and food vendors opened Monday as the 62nd annual Circus City Festival in downtown Peru continues all this week.
John Kirk says there’s a lot of effort and time to put together the week’s run of shows and events.
The circus talent you see during the shows isn’t shipped in. That’s local talent.
He also notes there are more participants now than in recent years.
Area counties will see some savings if they come to the Circus City Festival Tuesday.
