Chamber hosts Culpepper & Merriweather Circus at Osage City

An Osage City crowd was wowed by the circus acts under the big top at the early show.

The Osage City Chamber of Commerce sponsored the Culpepper & Merriweather Big Top Circus this past Saturday afternoon, Sept. 7, 2019, at Jones Park in Osage City. There were approximately 700 adult, children and senior tickets sold for the 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. shows.

The Chamber was represented by Jim Lohmeyer, Chamber member, who served as the guest ringmaster for the early show.

The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus specializes in animal acts of all types including horses, dogs, tigers and this year featuring Francis – The Comedy Lion, as well as first class acts of all kinds.

The show ran 90 minutes of good clean wholesome fun for everyone from 2 to 92 years old. The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus is one of the few circuses still performing under a huge tent. The circus master also invited the public to come out and watch the tent raising in the morning. 

Daredevils awed the crowd while negotiating the rotating rings, which almost touched the top of the big top.

Jones Park, Osage City, transformed into the temporary home of the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus, Saturday, Sept. 7, 2019.
