The Culpepper & Merriweather Circus entertained locals under their big top Monday night at the Wadena County Fairgrounds.

A highwire act, tiger show and daring tricks by a trapeze artist were some of the highlights of the circus. The 5 p.m. show was cancanled due to weather, but the 7:30 p.m. performance went on as scheduled.
