Circus appaearance canceled in Hillsboro

The Family Big Top Circus will not be performing in Hills?boro this weekend because it failed to get the required license to do so.

The discovery was made by Ben Steketee, code enforcement officer for the city of Hillsboro.

?While I feel terrible about it, my duty?s clear,? Steketee said. ?The rules are the same for everybody, and you have to wonder about someone that hopes they can skirt in under the rules. It?s their responsibility to contact us, and they failed to do so.?

Performances had been scheduled for 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. this Saturday (March 6) at the Marion County Fairgrounds.
