A bit of good news this week: The circus is coming back to Kuna
The circus is coming back to town.
The Kuna Lions Club is bringing back the Culpepper and Merriweather Circus for two shows, 2 and 4:30 p.m., on Saturday, July 17, in the parking lot behind the Kuna city park.
The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus is a good, old-fashioned, one-ring, big-top circus. The Kuna Lions Club brought them to Kuna two years ago, in July 2008, with much success. Nearly 1,000 locals attended the circus, which turned out to be a highly successful fundraiser for the Kuna Lions Club.
The circus includes performing animals, a high-wire act, a dog and pony revue, a trapeze performer, a unicycle act, a hula hoop act, an Old West horse comedy routine, and, of course, a clown. Each show in 2008 lasted nearly two hours and received rave reviews from those in attendance.
On the morning of the circus, residents can come down to the city park to watch the raising of the Big Top, then stay for a free tour.
