It’s always nice to see a community recognize and appreciate its jugglers! Here is a small town news video about John and his passion for fire juggling.

Three things we like about this video:

  1. The awesome “Juggling with John” hoodie. Looks like comfy-cozy way to advertise the biz!
  2. The unnamed cohorts. They’re definitely in it to win it, and they’re juggling fire too! You may not have gotten any shout-outs, but we see you back there fellas!
  3. The reminder of how fun it was to learn to juggle fire . . . And how much it freaked out our parents! We remember being in the backyard, dad poised with a trickling garden hose and mom barking safety reminders, looking through a window from inside the kitchen. What a rush. Your parents’ reaction is confirmation that the people on the street are going to love it!

Juggling Ban Lifted

A long time ban on juggling in the forest preserves of Cook County Illinois  has been lifted!

According to a report in the Chicago Sun-Times:

Forest preserve commissioners were in clean-up mode during their Wednesday meeting. They cleared off the books some old — and possibly illegal — ordinances and better defined “misconduct rules,” including what constitutes indecent exposure on the forest preserve links.

This included removing ordinances against juggling, acrobatic feats, and fortune telling.

We’re glad that Cook County officials finally realized that JUGGLING IS NOT A CRIME!
