MUSEUM UNDER THE BIG TOP!!

June 21 @ 5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Kosciusko County Historical Society is excited to announce
an upcoming event on June 21. The Old Jail Museum Will be
hosting “Museum Under the Big Top” from 5:00 to 9:00 P.M. in
conjunction with the June Third Fridays celebration in downtown
Warsaw. The event will feature music from a historic Tangly air
calliope, face painting and games for the kids, as well as circus
themed refreshments. There will also be an appearance by one of
only a handful of operational steam calliopes in the United States.
Once a staple of the traditional circus parade in America, these
unique instruments represent an experience rarely heard today.
At 7:30 there will be a concert of traditional circus music
presented by the Peru Circus Concert Band. In addition to these
activities the museum will be hosting an open house from 5:00 to
9:00. This year’s featured exhibit at the museum celebrates
Indiana’s rich circus history. At one time Indiana was home to
nearly every major circus in the country. This exhibit includes a
vast collection of historic posters, pictures, models, and artifacts.
Don’t miss this star spangled event for children of all ages! The
Old Jail Museum is located at 121 N. Indiana St. in downtown
Warsaw. For more information contact the museum at 574-269-
1078.
