The circus won’t come to town.
Earlier this spring, the Seymour Lions Club planned to bring the Culpepper & Merriweather Circus to Seymour.
A date was set in April.
Tickets were sold.
Then came COVID-19.
Now, circus officials announced in a news release Monday that all circus dates scheduled through the end of July will be rescheduled for the 2021 season.
That includes the show in Seymour.
“We are patiently waiting for the (pandemic’s) restrictions to be lifted to start the rescheduling process,” the release added. “The problem we are facing is the limitation on the number of people that can gather. This regulation is different for each city, county and state.”
