The 31. Annual European Juggling Convention is in town! How cool is that?!
Outside the convention center as I walked by last night there was juggling galore along with other juggling-related activities like tight-rope walking and unicycle riding.
And, have no fear, there was an ambulance on hand to take care of any juggling-related injuries.
I had no idea that the juggling community was so well organized that they had conventions!
And what do they do at juggling conventions? Discuss the latest technological advances in bowling pins? PowerPoint presentations on the physics of throwing and catching more things in the air than you have hands to hold? Sale subscriptions to some industry-related magazine called something like Juggling Today?
And this convention is going on all week! Is there really that much going on in the world of juggling to convene about? I am really really curious as to what goes on at this convention! Besides lots of juggling! Actually...maybe that's enough. I imagine jugglers and the sons of jugglers aren't the popular kids in school and maybe it's just enough to get together with your fellow jugglers and for once not be the weird guy that can throw and catch a dozen balls in the air at once.
