Circus dazzles Galion community
The Culpepper and Merriweather Circus was in Galion this week, thanks to the Rotary and Kiwanis clubs of Galion. The big top, one-ring circus went up in Heise Park on May 20 and two shows were offered to the community. The exciting performance opened with three jungle cats named Soloman, Delilah and Francis. Also appearing in the ring were a family of unicyclists, a trapeze artist and a contortionist, among others. For the finale, “Los Moralitos” took a spin on the Wheel of Destiny, a massive, death-defying rotating arm with a wheel on each end.
