Lancaster Social Circus Day Wrap-Up

The day started out rainy, but cleared up beautifully just in time for Lancaster Social Circus Day held at Buchanan Park, Lancaster, PA.  It was a rousing success!

My job was to help man the table to sign people in with waivers, but in between attendees, I was able to get some hooping in, being beside the music and all.  I had a great time. I think everyone, performers and attendees alike, did, too.

People came in off the streets, people came in from the dog park, and people came because they saw it on Facebook.  I believe when performance time rolled around, there were probably about forty people their in attendance.

Ringmaster and organizer Chris Tamburro was ecstatic over the success of this event, which was the first of its type that helped organize.  He’s the one in the foreground of the top photo in the red wig and jacket.  Well done, Chris!

I think people had a fantastic time playing with hoops, learning to juggle, discovering poi and contact staff, as well as giving acro yoga a try.

I hope this happens again next year.

Here are some more photos of the day that I got on my GoPro.  I didn’t get too many, as I was quite busy!

Oh, and here’s some video of parachute play that Jenny Hill of Acts of Jennius brought.


Thank you to everyone who had a part in this, and thank you for letting me help out.  The day flew by, and it was evident that a great time was had by all.

2015 Wellness Expo

The past Saturday brought the 2015 edition of the Wellness Expo that is put together (quite well, I may add) by employer’s Human Resources department.  I was there last year, and this year I was back running the hooping station, as I did the previous one.

It was funny, a few people came up to me asking if I was able to hula hoop while I was manning the table. I just gave them a look, grabbed a hoop, and showed them that I was quite capable.

This year, though, we had hooping entertainment from Jenny Hill of Acts of Jennius, my teacher and friend.  She was great with the kids, too.  She performed and interacted with the attendees.  People were quite entranced by her awesomeness!

We also did a lot of promoting for the World Hoop Day event we are putting together this coming Saturday.  (Seriously, COME ON OUT!)

It was an exhausting, but good, day overall.
