Everyone loves a circus

More than 400 tickets were sold for the two Culpepper & Merriweather Circus performances in Imperial Saturday, brought to town by the Imperial Chamber of Commerce. One of the acts, above, featured a tightrope walker who also road a bicycle across the wire, balanced while sitting on a chair and crossed it blindfolded. Clown Leo enjoyed interacting with the audience quite a bit. Pictured middle, Kylee Rowley enjoys some fun with him in the center of the ring. Below, several people were on hand Saturday morning when workers raised the circus tent at the fairgrounds. (Johnson Publications photos)
