The blue portion of the Community Foundation flower represents the circus tents of Miami County’s city of Peru, known as the “Circus Capital of the World.” Miami County’s circus history dates back to the late 19th century. By the 1920s, Peru was known as “Circus City.” The International Circus Hall of Fame is located there, and the town hosts a Circus City Festival and Parade each summer. The festival is put on by the Peru Amateur Circus, which is made up of performers ages 7 to 21.
