Lake City, Iowa -- Around 350 visitors enjoyed a circus in Lake City on Wednesday night. The Family Fun Circus out of Texas set up a 120 by 140 foot tent in Goins Park in Lake City. The 90-minute show included animals, acrobatics, juggling and balancing acts put on by primarily younger performers. A petting zoo, pony rides, and inflatable moon-bounce were part of the pre and post circus activities available for kids and families. Lake City, City Administrator Kimberly Kelly says the show was a lot of fun and people truly enjoyed the entertainment and kids appeared to be taking it all in. A 16-year-old being shot from cannon highlighted the evening. The circus also made stops in Breda on the 4th of July and was in Lake View Thursday night.
