“For me juggling is a community event,” Emily Brancel, an IJA volunteer said. “We always love to see young kids feel inspired and learn a new skill, so it’s always fun to have them join the family.”

Shows and competitions run throughout the week with it all coming to a close with the highlight “Cascade of Stars” show on Saturday. The evening performance will feature some of the top jugglers and circus talent from around the world.
