Peru Amateur Circus 2013


Peru, Indiana, keeps its rich circus heritage alive with a show-stopping extravaganza built around 250 youngsters. Almost one-tenth of its population (11,400) is involved in one way or another in this festive, week-long celebration.


The Peru Amateur Circus provides a marvelous example of how a community rallies around its children, and how the young troupers repay the investment of their parents and other adult volunteers in time, training and facilities.


This video which I hope encapsulates the outpouring of pride and adulation which came from this latest one-week series of performances:

This is another example demonstrating that, through the youth circus movement, the future of the American circus is in good hands indeed.
