The Culpepper & Merriweather circus will be performing in Caddo on September 28 at the Caddo School grounds. Show times are 2 and 4:30. Advance tickets are $10 for adults and $6 for children (higher at the gate). Tickets are available from Caddo Community Association members, Caddo merchants, and Roby’s Hallmark in Durant.
The circus has been a source of entertainment since Caddo was first established. This item is from the summer of 1874:
“We were not disappointed in the show of last Friday. The menagerie was a failure, but the circus performance was as good as could be expected of any company in this country. The ladies(?) of the troupe did their part well. They showed all they could under the circumstances, that is dressed as much as they were.”
