• Peru, IN, U.S.A. in Peru, IN

This unique festival has celebrated the American tradition of the family-friendly circus annually from 1958. The history, however, would make a great film. Seven major circuses wintered in Peru in the late 1800s, and a local man, Ben Wallace, ended up being the recipient of a few exotic animals when one circus owner defaulted. He started his own circus, blind lion and all. Rides, food and games fill up the downtown area during the middle of July for a week as circus performers wow the crowds. The grand finale is the Saturday parade, one of the largest in the state. Find out more about this interesting circus history and enjoy!
