It is a weekend of excitement, fun and laughter for everyone at the National Circus Festival

It truly is like stepping into another world as you enter The Famous Spiegeltent which is here for the National Circus Festival that is taking place this weekend in Mullumbimby before it once again heads off around the world.

About 5.20pm last Tuesday (January 8) police allegedly spotted a 31-year-old Murwillumbah man on a wharf on Tumbulgum Road, lying down with his pants around his ankles masturbating.

The man was searched and police allegedly seized methylamphetamine (ice).

The man was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with wilful and obscene exposure and possessing a prohibited drug.

He was bailed to appear before Murwillumbah Local Court on January 29.
