PERU, Ind. — The show will go on this weekend for 200 young people who are members of Peru’s youth circus despite a tornado that damaged parts of the community Wednesday.
 Performers ages 13 to 21 will take to the rings starting Saturday in a culmination of four months of intense practice.
 Peru is known as “Circus City” and has a rich three-ring tradition dating to the 1890s. Participants in the youth circus become jugglers, unicyclists, clowns, aerialists and tight-rope walkers.
 The Indianapolis Star reports most of the youth circus performers are girls because the four-hour daily practice conflicts with summer football workouts.
 Performances will run through July 20.
