Circus Mexicus gets a jump on giving back

By José Antonio Pérez and Shandra Keesecker-Rivero

With just about two weeks to go before the annual good spirits rock-n-roll trek to Puerto Peñasco for Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers’ Circus Mexicus, the local Tourist Auxiliary Unit (TAU) is getting a leg up on event goers – or make that a boot (or rather several pairs of boots).

While Roger Clyne & the Peacemakers have made a point of giving back to the community in various ways for nearly two decades, this is the third time specific equipment has been donated to the frequently dubbed “Tourist Police”, an auxiliary part of Puerto Peñasco’s Public Safety Department.  This year, event promoter Greg Ross detailed the donation to the TAU consisted of tactical boots and pants at an overall value of nearly $2000 US.

TAU Director Carlos Bravo, accompanied by TAU Advisory Board member Jim Ringquist, emphasized the charitable arm of Circus Mexicus, expressing his appreciation for the gear which in turn helps strengthen the TAU’s work.  He noted last year’s donation also included gloves, helmets, and flashlights, among other safety gear. This has gone a long way to better equipping this valuable squad.

Concert promoter Greg Ross detailed this year’s Circus Mexicus, to be held June 7th – 10th, anticipates over 3000 visitors coming in from over 30 US states and abroad.   He thanked the TAU for helping to provide “a safe fun environment for everybody to enjoy in Puerto Peñasco.”  Since the TAU’s implementation over three years ago, they have had a welcome presence at the numerous venues over the four-day concert weekend – look for them dressed in khaki pants, white shirts, and of course new boots!
