Teutopolis, Ill. — The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus came to Teutopolis on Monday, April 16 at the Knights of Columbus Grounds.
The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus came all the way from Hugo, OK, where they started in 1985. They have been performing for towns across the U.S. for 28 seasons. The circus put on a wonderful and entertaining act with their 35 employees, and one clown, along with a menagerie of dogs, horses, snakes, and birds. (They left the lions, tigers, and bears at home.) It made for a fun and memorable occasion for the whole family.
