Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Indiana Bicentennial Celebration 2016

Happy 200th Birthday, Indiana!



We are celebrating with 200 Days of Birthdays. Every day we will post a video of Hoosiers from around the state wishing Indiana a happy birthday. This is your chance to be a part of the Bicentennial! Submit your own video telling us how you are celebrating.

Each year approximately 200 young people ages 7 to 21, supported by a tremendous number of adult volunteers, present Peru Amateur Circus performances in mid-July. Also participating are Kiddie, Junior, and Adult Clowns, and a 50-piece Circus Band playing traditional and modern selections. Beautifully costumed performers are so skilled that circus fans find it difficult to believe that they are amateurs. 
This year the circus performance was Bicentennial themed, as an official Legacy Project.

Here, Circus Ringmaster Bruce Emery wishes Indiana a Happy 200th Birthday!
