A traveling circus had two shows yesterday at Babcock Park. I missed the shows but did take a photo of the setup, an elephant, their Hwy 3 signs, and their ad taped to a Northfield News paper dispenser box.
My wife Robbie and I visited the Minnesota Zoo last Saturday. Lions and tigers and bears, oh my. It was terrific. But I now wonder… with Minnesota Zoo 30 minutes away, should we be hosting this type of circus? And how much does a circus like this pay the City of Northfield to use its park? Are those signs on the Highway 3 shoulder and median legit? Did they pay the Nfld News to plaster posters on the dispenser boxes? Am I being too politically correct to be asking these questions?
